WINNER ·  SOCIAL JUSTICE AWARD ·  SANTA BARBARA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 

This moving, true story of an acid attack survivor’s fight to create a better future for her daughters is an inspiring and powerful call-to-action.

After surviving a malicious acid attack at the hands of her husband, leaving both Geeta and her daughters badly injured, both women are left to grapple with poverty and social ostracism. But they have also joined a burgeoning social justice movement working to end violence against women, catapulting Geeta onto a global stage, as co-founder of a local activist movement Sheroes, and in her fight for law reform and justice.

Both a personal tale of a mother fighting for her daughter’s destiny and a powerful call to action against domestic violence – Geeta and her daughter Neetu share their courageous story with award-winning Australian director, Emma Macey-Storch.

Emma Macey-Storch and Neetu Mahor are guests of the festival.
