Nadia, a girl living on collecting plastics from the Trash Mountain, decides to escape the mountain to pursue her dream.

Synopsis

Nadia is 12 years old. She and her friends live in the trash village. They spend 17 hours a day collecting plastics from the trash mountain. Most of their daytime activities, including sleeping and eating, occur in the mountain. Their families owe money from the trash mountain boss and collecting trash that worth something is the only way to repay the debt. In this inequitable system, it is only the boss who becomes richer while the families’ debt never gets smaller. One of Nadia’s friend even lost his arm in the mountain because he approached too close to the excavator while attempting to collect ‘good’ trash. There is no promise for better future in the mountain. Nadia wants to become a doctor. It is apparent to Nadia that she won’t be able to go to a college and live up to her dream in the mountain. She has to, somehow, escape the mountain and pursue a path that will take her to better life.
