This film is the incredible true story of Nepal’s first circus set up by survivors of human trafficking. It traces Saraswoti and Sheetal’s journey after being sold to corrupt Indian circuses. Over six years they confront the families that sold them, seek acceptance within their own country and begin to build a future. They struggle against the odds and without education, but these girls were left with a secret weapon by their captors - their breath-taking skills as circus artists. With eleven other young trafficking survivors, they form Circus Kathmandu. As they take the bold step of bringing an unrecognised art form to the stages of Nepal, they simultaneously challenge the deep-seated stigma against trafficked women. They discover the courage to perform in front of growing crowds and the strength to address their past. We travel with them in the rich beauty of the Kathmandu Valley, through the poverty-stricken border towns of the Terai plains and finally to the Big Top at Glastonbury Festival. Through this journey they use the crowd’s rapt attention to spread a message – to educate against modern slavery. A film that is both heart breaking and, unexpectedly uplifting. In Nepali with English subtitles.
