Children in India have taken their lives into their own hands. They don’t want to tolerate social grievances as well as environmental pollution any longer.

They have been founding children parliaments and electing their own ministers in order 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 have to 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.
