Children in India are now taking their lives into their own hands. They are no longer willing to endure social injustice and environmental pollution. They have been starting children parliaments and electing their own ministers to stand up for their rights. They are not only changing their own lives for the better, but also those of their communities. The film takes the perspective of the children to tell us about the challenges they face in a society that expects them to follow the example of adults. We will see how these children have opted to take a new path – with determination, courage and creativity. "A moving film that one hopes will also move others to action - here in Germany and also in India." (FBW Jury statement)
