In this resource young people explore the topic of inequality by engaging with and analyzing clips from the film Kaakka Muttai (The Crow's Egg) set in Chennai, India. The film is an entertaining film about the children's quest for pizza but also introduces the impact of globalisation and the inequalities that divide modern India and are apparent over the world.

The activities in this resource are suitable to use in lessons and as part of an extracurricular film club or Oxfam Youth Ambassadors club: http://www.oxfam.org.uk/education/global-citizenship/youth-ambassadors
