Indian-American filmmakers Abi Devan and Sudhi Rajagopal return to their homeland to document life in the desert communities of Rajasthan. Their journey leads them to the Panihari (women who fetch water). The film centers around one woman, Paru, a shoemaker's wife, as she struggles against nature and society to attain self-reliance for her family and herself.

Paru's story coveys the richness and complexity of desert life as well as the extreme obstacles women in India still face today. Vibrant imagery, music, and folklore combine to paint a vivid picture of life as a Panihari.

Grades 9-13.
Ideal for Women's Studies, Social Studies and South Asian Studies curriculums.
