This film travels through a multitude of voices that reflect the interdependent nature of our existence in a system that has, for thousands of years dehumanized Dalit women’s bodies and existence. In the film, we live through the experiences of injustice, resilience and resistance of women from the Dalit community, examining the ever reproducing nature of an oppressive society by invoking the art of seeing, learning, and listening.
