Description

In this short from India, a young boy changes the way he and his fellow young beggars approach the act of asking for contributions. The film reveals Indian society as one that must see a person’s value before it sees their humanity. Increasingly so, government assistance and other related services viewed as “handouts” are under intense criticism. For this reason, the film’s message, although fitted to Indian caste culture, extends to the western world as well.
