Dilawar, a rebellious seventeen-year-old orphan, dreams of escaping his strict uncle and his life in Kashmir. To do so, he supplements his income with illegal activities like pickpocketing. However, after he steals the passport of a local woman named Bani, the course of both of their lives changes.
Minimalist and striking, Zero Bridge is a heartfelt portrayal of the challenging everyday life inside the conflict zone–Srinagar, Kashmir. With its inherent rawness of storytelling, this film stays away from overt political comments and yet creates a palpable feeling of yearning for a better life.
