The Zanskar River flows through the Himalayas. The area of the Zanskar that must be crossed is called 'Chaddar' (ice blanket). This is the only road to Cha Village, which is located in a remote area of the Himalayas. The children of Cha Village must cross the frozen river to go to school. When the river starts freezing, the fathers begin to prepare for the journey through the river with their children. It is a rigorous, one-week expedition. However, it is a challenge that the children and their fathers must face in order to pursue an education. This documentary is the record of their heartbreaking journey.
