Summary THE REVOLUTIONARY OPTIMISTS follows 4 children from Kolkata's poorest slums on a journey through adolescence: two kids with no access to clean drinking water, a girl in forced labor, and a dancer about to choose childhood marriage to escape her abusive family. From their fragile lives, a lawyer turned change-agent mines the strength and vision to build a most unlikely revolution toward a better future, challenging the notion that marginalization is written into their destiny.
