Jhalki is a heart-rending but inspiring story of a nine-year-old street-smart girl, Jhalki, in search of her seven-year-old brother, Babu, who is suddenly thrown into an inhuman world of child labor with no respite from a terminally gloomy, dark and depressing workplace.
Armed with an intimate folk tale of a tireless sparrow, her own ingenious efforts and her charming presence of mind, Jhalki manages her search and eventually frees her brother, along with thousands of other enslaved children caught in this insidious practice, affecting over 150 million children worldwide.
