Meet Ram Mohammed Thomas. He is 18 years old, lives in Mumbai, and has just been arrested, starved, shocked with electricity, and tortured in unspeakable ways. Why? For winning a game show! The producers of India’s newest quiz show, Who Will Win a Billion? will not believe that an uneducated waiter could possibly beat their most difficult questions. They are convinced he must have cheated, and they will force a confession by any means necessary. Fortunately for him, a sympathetic lawyer is willing to take his case, but she must understand how he was able to give the correct answers. In Q & A, the basis for the new film Slumdog Millionaire, Vikas Swarup tells a clever story illustrating that you might know more than you think.
