When walking home from the cinema, student Jyoti Singh was gang raped and left for dead by six men; she later died of her injuries. This is the story of her life, her death, the course of the legal case and the use wave of protests her death inspired. Banned in India and the subject of much vitriol from the government, the film includes discussions with one of the rapists. Singh's parents, other sexual offenders and the defendants lawyers are all interviewed in an examination of the wider context of sexual assault in India and attitudes around women's rights.
