All The Worlds' A Stage by Nirmal Chander

The Film weaves together the lives and aspirations of a motley group of men who form an internationally successful performance group called Sidi Goma. It celebrates the joyous energy of their songs and dances, while tracing their struggle to survive in a world that threatens to marginalise them even further.
