Sarbjit Singh, un résident du Pendjab, disparaît au cours d’une nuit d’ivresse. Sans s’en apercevoir, il a traversé la frontière pakistanaise où il a été arrêté. Les autorités, persuadées qu’il est un espion à la solde de l’Inde...
This is the sordid saga of a man, Sarbjit whose destiny was penned by two warring nations. A simple man, a farmer, a wrestler, a son, a husband, a father and a brother, whose only misfortune was that he was an Indian who strayed in to Pakistan. Incarcerated for 23 years, in a 4ft by 5ft cell.. his life became a daily struggle to retain his sanity.. to keep the memories alive, to fuel the hope everyday.. bereft of human kindness or company.. he breathes.. he lives. His only solace lies in his sister, Dalbir, the woman who refused to give up. For 23 years, she fought to have her voice heard, knocked on every door, crashed every government bastion, shifted politics, influenced policy decisions.. she ran on sheer grit and will power, faced disappointment after disappointment. But she knew that it was her fighting spirit which kept her brother alive.
Sarbjit came back to us in a coffin.. but would we ever be able to return smiles across borders? Would Sarbjit's saga ever ensure that even one family would get their festivals back? A sister fights on.
