Smile Pinki

I just watched a very moving documentary called Smile Pinki. The movie is short, only 45 minutes, and is about children with cleft palates from extremely poor places in India. The movie follows a few of them from their villages to a hospital, where thanks to the charity, Smile Train, they can have surgery for free.

The movie actually won an Oscar earlier this year as best documentary. It is playing on HBO right now and I highly, highly recommend you watch it. Learning how these kids are afraid to go to school and how radically this simple surgery changes their lives is magical and inspiring. Here is a trailer:
