FEATURE FILM - SIJOU
A once-in-a-lifetime experience. A sweeping adventure. A journey to the wild vast lands of India and Bhutan , to follow the story of a boy who will fight against the odds of his birth and change the fate of his people forever.
The boy named SIJOU lives in a village in India. He is a very jolly child who loves playing with his friends, but who knows that one day he will become a slave. His life takes a drastic turn when he becomes a victim of the Feudal Land Tenure System which was in practice in Bhutan till 1958. Many people living near the Indo-Bhutan border were victims of this system until it was abolished.
