About String of Stories

Genre: Women Empowerment

String of Stories presents traumatic life experiences of three women who have been victims of the Devadasi tradition (religious servitude). The nonlinear treatment of the film provides a glimpse into the insidious ways in which the system works, especially how it has ruined their lives. These women, who hail from the least privileged sections of society, have been sacrificed at the altar of this illegal practice. Scarred by their experiences, they find themselves stripped of the fundamental rights to safety and education. Will they be able to rise above it and turn their lives around?

Director: Indrani Nayar-Gall
