Explore the world of India’s Hijra community in this hopeful documentary full of laughter, drama, excitement, and pathos.

Filmed over the course of seven years, director Ila Mehrotra charts the extraordinary journey of Rudrani Chetri and her friends, who are part of Delhi’s transgender Hijra population. Whilst traditional Hindu society recognises the ancient Hijra identity as a legal ‘third sex’ – a community of holy hermaphrodites – this does not mean acceptance…

A rare glimpse into the hidden world of the Hijra, the film offers a glimpse into unfamiliar places where relatable stories of love and loss, hope and poverty, beauty, glamour, and catwalk glory can be found.
