Description

Nara is a multi-caste village of Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs in the northeastern corner of Rajasthan. Nara is dominated by a Muslim farming caste called Meos. The film discusses only the Meos. It shows the paradox between a male ideology that demands the control of women and one woman's resistance to that agenda. ID:SA78
