In the dark underworld of Calcutta's overcrowded red light district appear a group of unforgettable children. Feisty, courageous, and wickedly funny—they are the children of prostitutes. They embark on a transformational journey with New York based photographer Zana Briski, who teaches them photography. This Oscar winning film is a humorous and heartfelt story portraying the resilience of children and the magic of art to transform life for young people living in the brothels.
“This is a work of art so deep and resonant that it puts most narrative films to shame.”—The Hollywood Reporter
