Film Synopsis

Farmer Arjun’s love and concern for his irrepressible son, Abhimanyu, motivates him to earn the money needed to buy back his ancestral land, lost to debt. Together, they embark on a quest to find work outside the village and visit the holy town of Arjun’s beloved deity so he can pray for divine assistance. But Abhimanyu is on a quest of his own to find his mother who he believes is also looking for him, but who Arjun has not told him has died. Set in the sun-baked farmland of Maharashtra, against the rising toll of suicides amongst poor Indian farmers, The Quest is a heartfelt, stirring tale of love between father and son.
