It is also a personal journey, 20 years ago our lead character Ravinol lived in a rural village in india as a monk. 

We follow Ravinol's journey as he develops a deeper appreciation of the challenges facing the girls and as a result evolves his own understanding.

 Conditions were often treacherous, sharing the road with cows, dogs, tractors, bikes, cars and lorries. This driver lost control on the winding hills just before we got there.

 We were fortunate to meet and interview amazing young women who are not only breaking the cycle of not having access to education but 'creating a new cycle by becoming role models for others' in the red light district where they live as children of sex workers. It was so inspiring to hear how education is giving them a whole new life.

 We met so many brave, strong girls supported by many wonderful organisations that despite huge opposition are determined to make a positive contribution and fulfill their potential.

The journey culminates in a plane journey to Vrindavan where the FFLV school for girls that inspired the trip is located and the same village ravinol lived in 20 years before.

This 90 minute film will take you on a journey of pain, struggle, adventure, hope and transformation.

 The beautiful welcome we received from the girls as we arrived at the FFLV school in Vrindavan after our 1800km tuktuk journey to raise funds for their education.

 The girls at the school are from very poor backgrounds and are beacons of hope for a country grappling with balancing tradition and progress.
