Menstruation

Chhaupadi sheds are common in mid- and far-western villages in Nepal. During their menstruation periods, women stay in these sheds which are unhygienic and unsafe, putting them at risk to their health and lives. People believe that women are impure during chhau and will make everything they touch impure. The film is the story of the women who have suffered due to unjustifiable traditions and practices. There is an urgent need to bring about a change in their hard and challenging lives.
