Together with other children, eleven year old Sonu lives on the streets of Katmandu. Their daily routine is a ﬁght to survive in the chaotic capital of Nepal: always on the prowl for food, drugs, charitable tourists and for what they seek most (as small boys do anywhere): fun and adventure! The life of Sonu and his pack is shaped by hunger and violence but is also ﬁlled with childlike moments of freedom on the streets! Great central character. Intimate storytelling. No narrator, no music, no staging. A masterpiece of Direct Cinema.
