The Children Must Have a Different Story

Round and round the merry go round. Where have all the children gone?

Two young boys within the Indian caste system have to steal to finish their work. A teenager on a trial shift at a beauty salon faces troubling workplace dynamics. A Senegalese girl accompanies her father into the bush every day to tend to their herd.

A coming-of-age programme with a difference, this International New Shorts programme deals with the uncomfortable global reality of children forced to grow up too fast. Labour, competition, social stigma - how can children heal, or adults look inwards to heal their own inner child? Can we ever find lost innocence?
