In a unique way of story telling, this film provides an extremely personal portrayal of the lives of nine girls as they deal with issues ranging from child slavery to arranged marriages. The film demonstrates the resilience of human beings when faced with such hardship and the importance of education to empower these girls to rise up and shape their futures. We see that “one girl with courage is a revolution”.
