Queen of the Beach

On vacation in Goa, a Canadian filmmaker turns his camera on a 9-year-old beach hawker. Funny, charming and skilled beyond her years, she is a migrant worker from the unique Banjara people and the primary breadwinner for her family. He returns several times to capture Shilpa’s story of sacrifice and survival and help her achieve her childhood dream of going to school – an effort that will test them both along the way.
