How is it to be a woman in India? How is their life compared to those of their mothers and grandmothers? These are the questions director Shammi Singh has asked women all over India. The result is a multi-faceted portrait of today’s Indian women with their struggles, challenges, reflections, hopes and dreams.
The huge contrasts between traditions and rapid modernization, religion and digitalization, rural and urban, men and women make India what it is today: a super-fast developing country with an immense cultural superstructure which affects everyone’s lives, in particular women’s lives. The film tells the story of women leading independent and self-determined lives.
