    • Synopsis
    • "Light Fly, Fly High" tells the striking story of a courageous girl trying to change her life in a society where opportunities are not given based on who you are, but where you come from. Thulasi is a young Indian girl, who is literally willing to fight for the right to be herself. Her family wants her to get married, her chances of getting a decent job are slim and being an 'untouchable', born outside caste, she's expected to accept her position at the very bottom of the social ladder. Making use of a government program that offers jobs to young athletes, she is trying to fight her way to the top in the boxing ring. Although she is one of the best boxers on her team, there are more obstacles to overcome than just the boxing championship.
