This documentary chronicles the day-to-day existence of street children in Bombay. Their lives are excruciatingly difficult, plagued by the expoitation and indifference of adults. Most of them are runaways or orphans, and they will do virtually anything to eke a living, from scavenging or stealing to selling drugs or their own bodies. In spite of this grim shadow which looms over their lives, they find time and energy for games and laughter. Dario Mitidieri's exceptional photographs capture the indomitable spirit of these forgotten children, revealing a courage and resilience which would put most adults to shame. A powerful and moving book.
