Daddy’s Turban takes us into the world of a little Sikh boy, Tegh, who is fascinated with the way his father wears his turban. Tegh wants to grow up quickly, while his father cherishes the innocence of his son. This is also a story of Sikh culture and a celebration of one of its most revered ceremonies – Dastar Bandi.
