What does it mean to be righteous? Can a single act of justice erase a lifetime of harm? In the impoverished, violent setting of the slums of Mumbai, India, there might just be room for redemption for the trio of characters that form the heart of this global "fairy tale."

The entertaining exterior of Slumdog Millionaire--impoverished "slumdog" rises from rags to riches to win love!--has sparked both criticism and praise in international film circles for its portrayal of urban Indian life, and won Academy Awards for its storytelling. This one-session study helps groups move beyond the vivid, dramatic exterior of the film to discover the complexity of issues surrounding poverty, violence, and repentance that dwell at the core of the characters' lives. Pulling from biblical materials and concepts, this study directs group conversation to explore the deeper themes in this popular film.
