A Tale of Two Children: Highlights the Difference between Rags and Riches.
31 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

Trash or Treasure is a great short that reveals two points of view; one from a spoiled girl from the UK and the other a homeless girl from Nepal. You get a sense of their lives from their surrounding environments that the director has captured well with the cinematography. The film is shot simply; letting actions speak louder than words. The film goes on to show comparisons to how resourceful those who are less fortunate are and how those who are burdened with "riches" take things for granted. In the end is a happy ending where we see that true happiness is in the eye of the beholder.

Lalit is a good artist encapsulating the human condition in the short film format. It's a nice heartwarming piece you should check out.
