Summary of the film

The stone quarries of Gujarat resound with the patter of tiny arms and legs straining to break large hunks of stone. These are the children of migrant mineworkers, displaced from their homes, separated from friends and pulled out of school, as their parents seek temporary livelihood in the stone quarries of Gujarat.

This film, which is part of a CHILDLINE Report, examines the uprooted lives of these children who are forced, by circumstances, into hard physical labour; in the context of the mammoth, financially viable cement industry of India.
