"A remarkably beguiling documentary, on a number of levels."--Jonathan Foreman, New York Post

Bombay Eunuch is an intimate, moving documentary look at one family's struggle to survive in today's changing India.

Through the voice of Meena, a 37-year-old and one of the county's estimated 1.3 million hijras, or eunuchs, Bombay Eunuch shows how far the once-esteemed group have fallen. Most are now social outcasts, many of them reduced to begging and prostitution. The world of the hijras has traditionally been closed to outsiders, so as the New York Times notes, that this "film exists at all is something of a coup." (71 mins.)
