The series which combines animation and live-action documentary addresses themes like climate justice, financial literacy, food insecurity, child marriage, discrimination, menstruation and sexual harassment. The project also features voiceovers from prominent actors and advocates from across the world including Freida Pinto, Charithra Chandran, Dilshad Vadsaria, Adhir Kalyan, Amita Suman, Amrita Acharia and Quyen Ngo.
