Dhanak is an enchanting fable that reinforces the belief that life is beautiful. The story revolves around an eight-year old blind boy, Chotu, his ten-year old sister Pari, and the road trip of a lifetime they take across the dunes of Rajasthan to get his eyesight back. Pari has promised Chotu that he will be able to see by the time he turns 9, and his birthday is now only two months away! What unfolds is a magical journey that only the innocence of childhood allows you to experience. Chotu and Pari meet a host of colourful characters who sometimes help and sometimes thwart their plan, but always nudge them one step closer to their final destination.
