The movie starts at 6:30 - I'll be downstairs by the entrance to the theatre about 6:15.

Mehendra Saini (Rajesh Tailang) is a worried father in New Dehli, India. Business is bad, and he sends his preteen son to work in a faraway factory. When his son does not return, Saini embarks on a journey to find him, without so much as a photograph to aid him. Saini’s search takes him to the factory, and then to the streets where he fears his son has been abducted and turned into a beggar. This powerful, Dickensian glimpse into the lives of India’s poorest people is evocatively conveyed through the meek Saini and his potentially fruitless quest.
