With 11 other young trafficking survivors, Sheetal and Saraswoti founded Circus Kathmandu – Nepal’s first and only circus.
Even When I Fall is a documentary film that traces their journey over six years as they confront the families that sold them, seek acceptance within their own country and begin to build a future.
The girls’ struggle against the odds, but something their captors don’t realise is that they left them with a secret weapon – their breathtaking circus skills.
As they take the bold step of bringing circus to the stages of Nepal, they challenge the deep-seated stigma against trafficked women, discover the courage to perform in front of growing crowds, and the strength and will to address their past.
