RUPA’S BOUTIQUE

Rupa, living in the city of Agra in India, wanted to be a fashion designer since her childhood. The girl would like to open her own boutique so that she could become independent financially. In the boutique, she would like to employ her fellow victims of acid attack. In the film, we are getting to know her and her fellow victim’s life stories and dreams, meanwhile they are preparing for a monumental fashion show, where the Rupa designed clothes are showcased by the survivors.
According to the activists of Stop Acid Attacks helping the victims, in India there are 3-5 attacks each week. Many victims do not report the crimes to the police because they are afraid of being socially stigmatized. The campaign helps victims to find their way back to society, they have established a crisis centre which provides safe environment for victims, where they can receive medical help and can spend their time in convenient and useful way. The center also supports them in unfolding their ambitions be it activist aspirations or working in their café.
