Their dreams and challenges are articulated with a mix of thoughtful self-reflection, insight, and humour. Featuring Rasneek, a Sikh DJ, who mixes bhangra and hip-hop; Sonia, a committed feminist, who works in health care for women. Amrapali, a classically trained Kathak dancer, now dancing in the Cirque du Soleil, and Dileepan, a budding public policy maker.
