Synopsis | Stats | People/Crew | Filmmaker Bio
This is a visual tribute to the lepers who have been ostracized by the community for decades, and their children who try hard to integrate into society. It is not about a forgotten disease, which we no longer hear about in developed countries. It is not about how terrible a disease it is. It is about human strength and the never-ending struggle for dignity.
