In India, scavenging street dogs are treated as the lowest of the low. Shopkeepers swat them with brooms. Mothers scream at them and whisk their kids out of harm's way.

Zelda, The Queen of Paris is the story of one such slumdog, who with grit and humor won over an American couple, escaped the New Delhi streets, and wound up being crowned The Queen of Paris.
