The documentary is about the horrific rape case that occurred in Delhi, India on 16 December 2012.

According to the latest government figures, a woman is raped in India every 20 minutes.

India's Daughter is a documentary about the horrific rape case in December 2012 that shocked the world. It is very disturbing to watch, particularly because of the extensive description of sexual violence and the warped thinking of certain individuals interviewed in the film.

Through her parents and friends, viewers get to know the victim Jyoti Singh. Rape victims are often shamed but Jyoti's parents are not ashamed of their daughter because of the unfortunate incident.

Asha Devi: Whenever there’s a crime, the girl is blamed; "She should not go out. She shouldn't roam around so late or wear such clothes." It's the boys who should be accused and asked why they do this. They shouldn't do this.

One of the suspects is interviewed in the film, and he has deplorable opinions about the differences between men and women. He seems to have no remorse for being involved in such a heinous crime, and he even has the audacity to claim that it is the rape victims who are to blame.

But I think it is more distressing to hear the backward views of the defense lawyers about women, because they do not have poverty and lack of education to account for their ignorance. One of the defense lawyers M.L. Sharma even proudly stated, "We have the best culture. In our culture, there is no place for a woman."
