Every 5 minutes a child arrives at a railway platform in India alone and vulnerable. Running away from poverty, abuse and neglect, hitching rides on over-crowded trains to the big cities, hoping to find a better life. The dangers they find on the streets are often much worse than those they run away from. Who will find them first? Drug dealers? Child traffickers? Rescue workers?
