Activists: Robin Chaurasiya and Trina Talukdar, Kranti

Filmmaker: Kate Taunton

This is a film about two unique activists in India. Based in Mumbai, Robin and Trina helped found Kranti, an organisation that works to empower women that have been trafficked.

India has many worthy NGOs that rescue girls but Robin and Trina are grass roots activists that challenge traditional methods. They do not just rescue trafficked girls, they house them for the long term, educate them and help them achieve their goals. The girls in their programme are even called 'revolutionaries'.

This film follows Robin and Trina as they struggle against daily prejudice in a very traditional society.
