WORLD PREMIERE Three young Indian women in a conservative Muslim town seek to change their futures through education and self-determination. The opportunity to continue their schooling has opened up the possibility of a different future for Karishma, Apsana and Samira, but even as they prepare for final exams, their families threaten to pull them back into the prescribed roles of wives and mothers. At once inspiring and frustrating, Brave Girls neatly captures the extraordinary challenge of breaking with cultural tradition.
