Duration: 01:04
Program: Independent Lens #1103

Forget Slumdog Millionaire—here's the real-life story of survival on the streets of India. Follow Azad, a young pickpocket, who pushes his limits only to get caught by the police. In an effort to crack down on more serious crime, the police offer Azad a full pardon. But there's a catch—he must turn in his fellow grifters. Will he collaborate or risk it all for life on the streets?

In this clip, Azad pledges loyalty to his fellow thieves.
