Out of Sight
The documentary is about people who practice pick-pocketing for a living; one of the oldest and most widespread crimes in the world, and one that is continually being reinvented. It requires considerable dexterity and a knack for misdirection.

The questions that sparked this topic were why and how pickpockets get into this profession. The practice would almost be considered a form of art if it were not a crime. The documentary attempts to investigate the various factors that push people into this intriguing line of work.

Every art form needs practice and precision. The documentary explores aspects of their training, the tricks and methods they employ in their crimes, and how they are mentored in the practice. The film attempts to offer a glimpse into the lives of these people and their struggle for survival. It is an exploration to understand this unknown and often misunderstood section of society.
