Jungle Cry is the incredible true story of 12 orphaned boys from India, from Kalinga Institute with no clue about rugby.

Here is the fabulous trailer
Also featuring cameos by some of the top names in the sport, including world famous rugby referee Nigel Owens, Wales and British Lions fly half Phil Bennett and Colin Charvis, former captain of the Wales National Rugby Union Team.
Abhay Deol said, “In the land of cricket, where there is hardly any noise about Rugby, 12 young children from rural India made history. With this film that defines nothing is impossible, I hope to have honoured the players’ dedication and commitment to the sport and the country. We are excited to bring ‘Jungle Cry’ to audiences and share with them the journey of these heroes who made a mark in the sporting history of India – but were never spoken about.”
