SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE

An eighteen-year- old from the slums of Mumbai finds himself competing on the game show "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, " where the questions he must answer offer a look back at his earlier life. The show's host, however, insists that he must be cheating and takes steps to force young Jamal to admit that a boy from such an impoverished background could not possibly possess the knowledge necessary to win the show's top prize.
