Usha and the Stolen Sun tells the powerful story of a young girl who wants to bring change to the village where she lives. The village has had no sun for years due to a wall which stands between Usha’s home and the neighbouring town. She decided to take action and find a way to bring down the wall.
This is a joyful story which focuses on one girls quest to bring change. Usha discovers that by using her voice and sharing her story she can break down barriers in more ways than one.
