Set in the backstreets of Agra’s slums, GEETA follows one woman's journey who is fighting for a better life for her three daughters,
Married at a young age, Geeta found herself in an abusive marriage, and continually harassed by her husband and in-laws for giving birth to girls. Geeta and her three daughters’ lives were changed forever when her husband,, egged on by his family, plotted and carried out an acid attack that critically injured Geeta, blinded her young daughter Neetu, and killed her newborn baby girl. Ostracized by her community and disowned by friends, Geeta pulled herself away from the brink of suicide and found the courage to fight for justice for herself and daughters and build a new life for all of them. From being forced – by social structures and property laws to remain living with her husband, to finding a way for her daughter Neetu to have life-changing eye operations, to becoming an independent and respected leader of the women of her community, Geeta’s story is wildly courageous and a stunning reminder of the power of love to create real and lasting change.
