Present-day India. Three men sit at the edge of a field smoking. A woman is crouched in the field working. Another is cleaning the floor in the house. Two young women are shucking peas. One of them tells her sister about her rape and who she blames. Itís her own grandmotherís fault. The fire blazes away out in the field. In dense situations and images, documentary filmmaker Jayisha Patel follows the women of this house on the villageís edge. She provides a glimpse into the cycle of violence, an insight that is directly connected to the women who experience sexual violence first hand. The daughter is to be married off, all of the details are already worked out. Will there be any escape from this cycle? The daughter speaks. She can name what happened to her. It could be a sort of beginning.
