In a cluttered news landscape dominated by men, emerges India's only newspaper run by Dalit women Khabar Lahariya (loosely translated as “news wave”). Chief Reporter Meera and her journalists break traditions, redefining what it means to be powerful. Armed with eagle-eyed filmmakers and compelling subjects, the film deftly blends the personal and professional sides of the journalists’ work, offering up a wide-ranging look at a vital outlet with so many stories to tell.
