When Cecilia’s 14 years old daughter is trafficked and found dead in Delhi, Pankaj and Sunaina decide to help her get justice. As the trio battle corruption at all levels, they find themselves navigating a complex network of cops, traffickers, judges, lawyers, villagers and family members. When Cecilia’s husband is kidnapped and her two sons are forced to leave the village, Cecilia begins to lose all hope
