A penetrating, personal look at contemporary India - a snapshot of the world's largest democracy at a moment of transition.The End of Karma explores India through the lens of young people from different worlds: a Maoist rebel; a woman killed because she married the 'wrong' man; a teenage girl who needles her dad to let her become a police officer.
