A STORY OF HOPE
When an Indian woman becomes a widow, her life changes without warning. She faces abandonment by her family and rejection by those around her. These women are left with little resources, often times with only the clothes they wear. When widows have nowhere to live, many migrate to holy cities such as Vrindavan, “The City of Widows”. In these cities, they spend their days begging for money and food.
Beyond Karma is a documentary film about the story of hope for Indian widows, told through personal stories of empowered women who have overcome the obstacles they face as widows.
