Født til at kæmpe

80 min.DK/Documentary

"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.
