Frozen is the story of survival. Danny Denzongpa plays a widower called Karma who just about manages a living for himself, his teenage daughter, and her younger brother, by making apricot jam. But he's unable to compete with others in the trade who use machines to make jam, unlike himself who must rely on manual means. Pushed to the brink of desperation by unscrupulous moneylenders who shamelessly volunteer to write off his loans in exchange for his daughter, Karma is at breaking point. When the Indian army sets base close to his house and urges him to move, all hope is lost for the family.
