A scene from "Talentime".

The Indian star

At the end of a heartbreaking scene in the film, a Hindi song by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is heard. The words say, "It feels like I've been raised by strangers... please take me into your world..."

The song ends on a 12-year old Indian girl dancing like an angel on stage. Our hair stood on end as we filmed her floating across the floor, in moves that spelled deep love and heartache.
