The members of the Budhan Theatre are tribal rebels who were notifies as "born criminals" by the British in 1871, and imprisoned in a labor camp in Ahmedabad. After Indian independence, they were de-notified, but the stigma of being "born criminal" follows them to this day. This documentary reveals how theatre has transformed the lives of adults and children within the community.
