    Soni runs an orphanage in India’s bloodiest conflict zone, a dense forest where a mining company and rebel forces are at war. She is unexpectedly caught in the crossfire, and is arrested, tortured and raped. Her arduous quest for justice makes her a symbol of resistance against state oppression in the world’s largest democracy.
