Inspired by a true story: In 1984, Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was assassinated by her two Sikh bodyguards, causing anti-Sikh riots to erupt throughout the country. A teacher travelling back from a field trip with her class of 10-year-old students struggles to protect Kush, the only Sikh student in the class, from the growing violence around him.
Shubhashish Bhutiani is a director and actor, known for Kush (2013), The Star (2012) and The Road Home (2010).
Kush won the Satyajit Ray Film Foundation Prize for Best Short Film at the London INDIAN Film Festival
