Chuskit is a young, dynamic and playful girl who is looking forward to starting school and following in her brother’s footsteps but whilst out running in the mountains she trips and falls, an accident which renders her paraplegic. This does not, however, sway her from wanting the education she has always desired, meaning Chuskit must lock horns with her conservative and tradition-bound grandfather and convince him what she is capable of. This heartwarming Indian family-drama shows the difficulties faced by a girl caught between two worlds and the resilience she must show to escape the shadow of prejudice that her disability brings.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
