In the tiny village of Meerwala, Pakistan, peasant farmer Ghulam Fareed ekes out a meager living with his son, Shaqoor, and his young daughter, Mukhtaran Mai. When Shaqoor is accused of molesting the neighbor's daughter, the family seeks recompense by engineering the rape of Mukhtaran. The documentary chronicles the desperate efforts of Mukhtaran and her family to find justice in Pakistan, a country where women don't have equal rights and men and the military rule the land.
