Some offers really are too good to be true. In 2015, 68 Nepalese and Indians students learned this lesson the hard way. Each paid $10,000 to study at an American institution calling itself Lambirds Academy. Lambirds promised eight months of education, a work visa and a guaranteed job on a cruise ship. When the students arrived at Lambirds’ campus on the Caribbean isle of St. Lucia, they found nothing but an empty room above a grocery store. They were left stranded, broke and homeless, with their passports confiscated.
Fini Maza’s documentary recounts the story of these ruthlessly scammed students as they struggle to redeem their investment—and their dreams.
