Summary

Daughters and Destinies follows the lives, loves and losses of Mamta and her young daughter Ranju. After the tragic death of her husband Ram, Mamta is left to fend for herself. Working as a housemaid at Mrs Sareen’s bungalow on Aurangzeb Road, she strives to give her daughter the best life possible. Ranju, a bright student herself, vows to work hard and change her family’s fortune. But in a cruel twist of fate, when little Ranju is sexually assaulted by her mother’s former lover, the family is shattered. Will Mamta be able to give her daughter the life she never had? Will Ranju be able to recover from her unspeakable trauma?

Daughters and Destinies is a powerful look at the struggles of invisible women, the violence they face and the resilience with which they carry on, to build a better future.
