This feature-length documentary chronicles a giant, cross-cultural "family" in S. India over 10 years. The kids used to beg or pick through garbage, often beaten and cast aside. Today they chant Sanskrit Vedas in famous temples, pass exams, and do seva (selfless service). A story of love beyond biology, and attempts to live righteously in a corrupt world, the narrative is complex, nuanced, and reflective of the unanswerable questions central to the human condition.
