The director (Zana Briski) is determined to use the photography to provide the children with the opportunity for higher education, hope and a better life. Of the children, only one of which, Avijit, is able to separate himself from the rest through actual talent with the rest being young and imaginative kids, the same that one would find anywhere else in the world.
