SUN CHILDREN is the story of children who must work to support their families. To this date, there are 152 million children in this situation. International organizations are waging a desperate fight to support these young people who are subjected to abuse and deprived of their human right to education. The message of SUN CHILDREN is that we are all responsible to these children, many of whom are extremely talented and all of whom are precious. It is simply not tolerable that their social and economic status consign them to a future of limited opportunities and poor prospects. SUN CHILDREN demonstrates the abilities and humanity of these children. Our main juvenile actors were all child labourers and all proved to be astonishing and extremely intelligent performers.
