Synopsis

Banned in India since its completion earlier this year, Leslee Udwin’s film is the story of an exceptional and inspiring young woman, the 23-year-old medical student Jyoti Singh, publicly known as “India’s Daughter.” The film documents her short life, and the explosive cultural and political climate surrounding her murder by brutal gang rape in New Delhi, December 2012, which led to an eruption of public outrage, mass street protests, and India’s biggest social mobilization since the country’s fight for independence. The savage gang-rape of Jyoti Singh raised the fury of Indians and shook the social fabric of the country, and the world, to the core. A moving and illuminating film, “India’s Daughter” bears witness to the truth about rape in global society, and the shift in attitudes that loom on the horizon.
