The universal story of MAYA will be accessible to the public on Vimeo On Demand tomorrow, 24 September 2016 at 7pm GMT, exactly one year after its world premiere at Raindance Film Festival.
This incredibly touching piece of cinema tells the story of three homeless kids, Maya, Bikram and Kancha, who escape from the slave traders, only to find themselves trapped in the heart of Kathmandu in Nepal. Penniless and alone, they are forced to live on the streets with only their hopes and dreams of happiness.
Fans can now pre-order the film on the platform and enjoy this beautiful work of art at home from tomorrow and until the end of time!
Furthermore, the film crew decided to donate 25% of the profits to C.H.A.N.C.E for Nepal and MAITI Nepal in support of their continued efforts to support the children and families, who fell victim to the devastating earthquake that occurred in Nepal last year.

Every person has their own story that shapes the way they perceive films, music, paintings, and writings… Here’s how mine has shaped my perception of MAYA…
I know we’re all bombarded with tons of information and news every day, and I know you’re probably tired of scrolling through your Facebook feed only to read about the same things over and over again. But if there’s one last thing you read about MAYA, make sure it is this.
Because this is not just about a film. It is about salvation.
‘MAYA’ has come at a time in my life when I needed a glimmer of hope the most. Not only is it a very poetic, visually brilliant film, supporting a story that withholds tenderness as much as it does cruelty, but also and mostly, it is a heart-to-heart whisper, breathing life into anyone watching it.
And because it is not just about cinema. It is also and above all about people.
The film crew behind this extraordinary, genuine and touching piece is nothing but kind-hearted, and I feel so blessed to have become a part of their world and for them to have become a part of mine.
Because it is not just about me, or them, or you. It is about others too.
25% of the profits raised will go to Chance for Nepal and Maiti Nepal, in support of their continued efforts for the children and families who fell victim to the devastating earthquake last year.
So I don’t know about you, but I will treat myself with this art piece tonight and I will keep it close to forever remember what it feels like to lose faith and find hope all over again.
I only hope you do too.
