In Karachi, Pakistan, a runaway boy’s life hangs on one critical question: where is home? The streets, an orphanage, or with the family he fled in the first place? These Birds Walk documents the struggles of these wayward street children and the samaritans looking out for them.

MUBI's take

An impressionistic documentary about the plight of Pakistani orphans and runaways, These Birds Walk is an immersive and richly rewarding vérité portrait of childhood. The film’s subjects respond candidly to the camera, which captures their daily lives with compassion and with grace.
