The setting of this film is in the Ladakh (“land of high passes”) region at the very northern edge of India renowned for its remote mountain beauty. Chuskit is a charismatic ten-year-old girl who eagerly explores the country around her and going to school with her friends. Her life takes a difficult turn after an accident results in full paralysis of her legs. Chuskit becomes a story of triumph over adversity. It captures the pathos of life when lived with imposed limitations as well as the exhilaration that comes when those limitations are transcended. (Story inspired by true events.)
