Chuskit is a sprightly and mischievous young girl whose dreams of going to school are cut short after an accident leaves her disabled. She is confined to life indoors in the company of her strict grandfather, Dorje, who is adamant she can no longer go to school and must stay at home. As life at home gets harder, her battle with her grandfather intensifies but Chuskit refuses to let go of her dreams and won’t let her family’s traditional background dictate her future. Set in the mountainous region of Ladakh, Chuskit is a beautiful and heart-warming film about following your dreams.
