La storia di tre tiratori di rickshaw per le strade di Kolkata. Li chiamano uomini cavallo, per via del lavoro che svolgono, in realtà sono gli ultimi fra gli ultimi, una testarda testimonianza della vera essenza della dignità umana. In una città che, quasi tenuta insieme dalla sua agonia, ha la vitalità spasmodica di chi è prossimo alla fine.

Ibrahim, Ram and Raju are three rickshaw pullers in Kolkata – a city held together by its agony, which has the spasmodic vitality of some – thing that is nearing its end. These men are called £Human Horses” because of the work they do. Actually, they are the last of the lasts, a stubborn proof of the true essence of human dignity.
