Buddha of the Chadar is a film about a father and son from Ladakh who embark on a winter journey along the frozen Zanskar River - a route known as the Chadar.

 

In veneration of their faith, they carry a heavy statue of Gautama Buddha, which they plan to offer to a remote Buddhist monastery at their journey's end.
