About: The Circle is a film about the transformational power of yoga in treating drug addiction in the street children of Mumbai. The film focuses on the centre in Dharavi, which finds and takes in some of the most vulnerable members of society, ultimately reforming their lives.
The documentary tells the tale of four street children through their individual stories, portraying their harrowing ordeals whilst living on the streets. We hear how they fall into a cycle of addiction, how they live out of dustbins, and survive simply by selling rubbish, using drugs to block out their inner pain.
