When drought, scarcity and poverty are rampant and virginity is the sole criterion for family pride, child marriages become a way of life. This documentary tries to explore the compulsions which lead the people of Rajasthan to force their little children into matrimony, in open defiance of the law of the land and all attempts at reform.
