The Daughter Tree

The Daughter Tree

Directed by Rama Rau

Across India, the rampant sex-selective practice of aborting baby girls is leading to all-male populations in some villages. With a rapidly growing population of over a billion, India is poised on the brink of a seismic shift towards male-centricity. This provocative documentary follows a midwife struggling to encourage women to bring baby girls into the world. And we visit the village of the Daughter Tree, where a tree is planted every time a little girl is born.

In India, the sex-selective practice of aborting females is leading to an over-population of men. One midwife struggles to help women bring baby girls into the world.
