Ibrahim, Ram and Raju are three rickshaw pullers in Kolkata

– a city held together by its agony, which has the spasmodic vitality

of something that is nearing its end. These men are called “Human Horses”

because of the work they do. Actually, they are the last of the lasts, 

stubborn proof of the true essence of human dignity.
