Description:

In one of the most socially oppressive and patriarchal states of India emerges a newspaper run
entirely by rural women belonging to the Dalit or ‘untouchable’ community. Meera, its popular
political reporter, decides to magnify the local paper’s impact with an audacious move – to transform from print to a digital news agency. Working in media dark villages, mocked and discouraged, this is the story of a visionary woman’s feisty spirit in building what will probably be the world’s first digital news agency run entirely by rural Dalit women.
