The Undefeated narrates the hurdles and joys of five vulnerable children in contemporary India. Each story is fictional but heavily inspired by the real life of the children sheltered and protected by the NGO TARA in New Delhi. The film itself is divided into five scenes. In turn, each child takes the stage to tell his or her story, either through the evocation of a significant event, or through a slice of life. They tell us about their personalities, but also their joys, their doubts, and their hopes. To emphasize their personality and their point of view, each part is also animated in a different style.
