Summary

Summary

Twenty young women from across India arrive for an intense, month-long beauty boot camp to prepare for the Miss India pageant. Winning means stardom and freedom from the patriarchal society. In another corner of India we visit a camp for young girls run by the militant fundamentalist movement to make them good Hindu women. Moving between both camps and the characters' private lives, this is a provocative portrait of the world's largest democracy at a critical transitional moment.
