Our film is the journey of life and all the emotions that come with us. This film gives a truthful look at the lives of many today. The film shows many different backgrounds a tiny village in Rajasthan, to the center of it all Mumbai, and even travels across the seas to The Big Apple New York. Meeting many new faces along the way that add their own unique twists to the lives of the characters.

A wonderful example of how people though from different backgrounds can have importance and impact in each other lives.

Laxmi does everything in her power to educate and bring awareness about the issues affecting women in her village and in India. She is a quintessential fighter for women’s education and empowerment.
