A gram panchayat (village governance body) in rural India, encourages and facilitates the functioning of a kids body elected by children themselves. These kids, unbound by the baggage of personal gains, work with diligence, acting as a pressure group to inspire the adults governing body to react and improve upon socially relevant issues. Many adults try to influence them for their own personal benefits. But guided by a sympathetic and honest school teacher the children fight back with integrity and persistence.
