Nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature Film!

A masterfully produced, unflinching film about Ranjit, a farmer in rural India who takes on the fight of his life when he demands justice for his 13-year-old daughter, the victim of a terrible village sexual assault. His decision to support his daughter is virtually unheard of in India where the system offers little legal recourse. His journey is unprecedented in a country where sexual abuse of women and children is a common problem.

The story of Ranjit and his fearless daughter, enduring so many voices clamoring for them to stand down, is one of remarkable strength, defiance and inspiration.
