A brutal street life.
22 August 1999 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The streets of Yogjakarta in Central Java are occupied by homeless kids, attempting to survive the hopelessness of everyday life. The daily routines of three street kids are followed as they are slowly erased from the Earth's memory. Provoking stuff from a country swimming in poverty.
