When an Indian woman becomes a widow, she often loses more than just her husband. She faces abandonment by her family, rejection from larger society, and pressure to trade her old life for an ascetic existence. Donning a simple white sari, and alone for the first time in her life, she must make a new way for herself in a world that sees her as an outcast; a bad omen; an untouchable.

Beyond Karma chronicles the stories of some of the most vulnerable women in the world and the myriad ways they persevere with resilience, resourcefulness, and hope.
