Doku II, 2
Three women from Nizamuddin Basti, Delhi, are longing for freedom. Shah Jahan is suffering from depression. That people call her “fat” is the last drop which makes the glass of her daily misery overflow. Afroz Jamala is vegetating in her home. When the numbness in her hands increases she despairs and fears death. Mehru Nisha is yearning to leave her home again, eventually. The three women are oppressed by their Muslim environment and their lives are radically curtailed. When one day a fitness centre for women opens in their neighbourhood, the three Muslim women from Nizamuddin Basti see an opportunity to break free from oppression and its physical and mental consequences. They seize their chance to change their lives.
