An eye-opening journey, this film allows viewers to follow along with first-time filmmakers as they document the lives of orphans living on the streets in southern India.
“With over 31 million orphans in India, David Trotter and Shawn Scheinoha showed up hoping to find kids who would be willing to trust them enough to show them life through their eyes. What they didn’t expect was to be warmly welcomed by a family of 25 children living along the railway.”
This short documentary from Word Films showcases the individual stories of a handful of these children. We learn about the hardships of their family lives and what drove them to live on the streets. We are introduced to the two youngest members of this group Polayya (3) and Koteswari (7) who were forced out by their alcoholic parents to beg for money.
