In India, menstrual hygiene has been a taboo for centuries. This film tells the uplifting story of two young women, one in rural and the other in urban India, who have overcome the fears and myths surrounding menstruation. A new sanitary napkin factory has encouraged women and girls to start using pads instead of rags, and spreading awareness of the importance of hygiene. In the suburbs of Mumbai, women have been employed at another sanitary pad unit, which is giving them financial independence.
