Women of Varanasi by Mamta Singh

Hidden within the intricate cobwebs of the narrow alleys of Varanasi are stories of women, their struggles and life choices, how they continue to evolve simultaneously amending the socio-cultural and political spaces thy find themselves in. The Film journeys with them as they descend towards positive change.
