A review of Untouchable from the CUT team....

A moving short story about the plight of those deemed to be beneath all others in society. “Untouchable” tells of a Nepali girl and her family’s struggle against extreme hardship and injustice. Laxmi is born into a world seemingly without hope or mercy, but she is determined not to allow the circumstances of being low-born to define not just her life and future, but also her soul. A stark tale told with eloquence and humanity.
