    • Synopsis
    • “I always said I was the most orphaned orphan of all orphans. After all, my parents are alive and I’m here”. This is Sumi’s summary of her situation when she is with her peers. After being abandoned on a train, this girl ends up in a home for orphaned and abandoned children in Basundhara, Orissa, in the North of India. Sumi finds girls with different histories there, but also girls whose stories are similar to her own. Lives which start to crisscross. Girls who share the same hope of growing older in better conditions to those of their childhoods. Through the education they receive from the home coordinators, they try to twist their destiny around. What they have to live with, and what they finally find, doesn’t always correspond to what they dreamed with.
