Lakshmi (2014) Trailer


Trailer for Lakshmi.

Nearly 44, 000 children are abducted in India every year, a quarter of whom are never traced. Most probably wind up in the sex trade. That’s the background for this powerful social protest film, which is inspired by a true story. Thirteen-year-old Lakshmi (singer Monali Thakur) is abducted along with several other girls. Taken to a brothel, she learns how to survive from a more experienced roommate. But Lakshmi is not ready to accept her fate. Her repeated attempts to escape only serve to remind her of the futility of her situation, until one day the appearance of a social worker offers a ray of hope.

Against all odds, the terrorized, degraded and scarred child is more determined than ever to fight back. Resisting threats, coercion and bribes, she shows rare courage and determination to stand up in court in what becomes a landmark case.
