Description: Children are saving lives in the slums of Calcutta. Amlan Ganguly doesn't rescue slum children; he empowers them to become change agents, battling poverty and transforming their neighborhoods with dramatic results. The Revolutionary Optimists follows Amlan and three of the children he works with - Salim, Kajal and Priyanka - on an intimate journey through adolescence, as they fight for the better future he encourages them to imagine is deservedly theirs.
