Synopsis

The poignant and personal story of 13 year-old Khushboo. A portrait of a rape victim, caught in the devious ploys of her family. Stories of the horror of her gang-rape, emotional abuse at the hands of her grandmother, who orchestrated her rape, and that of her child marriage to a man she does not know are poignantly woven. As Khushboo changes hands from one abuser to another, we delve deeper into her grandmother’s story – to where this circle traces back.
Told simplistically through an observational lens, this intimate and delicate film attempts an understanding of the nature of abuse, and a closer look at the perpetrator, as much as it does of the victim itself. Where does this circle begin? Where does it go? And can there be any release?
