documentary film pays tribute to the remarkable and inspiring short
life of Jyoti Singh and documents the brutality of her gang-rape and
murder in Delhi in December 2012.
also examines the mindset of the men who committed the rape, and -
perhaps most importantly - it sets these specifics against a wider
in-depth exploration of the patriarchal society and culture which not
only seeds but may be said even to encourage violence against women.The
focus of the film's exploration is on the compelling human stories
behind the incident in the context of a world in which brutality against
women is so commonplace. Ultimately, the film is optimistic - the case
has been a catalyst for change, and the massive public response to the
incident bears witness to an attitudinal change on the horizon, which
the film seeks to amplify.
