“It is very easy for very important stories to go missing in a country as vast, populated, diverse and bewildering as India, but this film illuminates one of the most crucial.” 
The Guardian

Single documentary that follows the lives of children in Jharia, India – a vision of hell where the earth is literally on fire, as vast subterranean coal fires burn out of control beneath towns and villages.

The film follows one young girl, Dolly, who works every day of the year scavenging coal, making less than a pound a day, walking shoeless across hot coals.

First shown on Channel 4 in April 2009.
