Existing as they have for centuries, the Eunuchs (or Hijra) are considered the third gender, neither men nor women.Harsh Beauty follows over a period of 3 years the lives of Jyothi, Usha and hira bai, three Eunuchs who live openly as women, and
want to be accepted as their true selves.
This one hour documentary uses a verite approach, creating intimate and personal accounts of their lives, without presenting an
anthropological perspective. Set against the vibrant energy of the Indian metropolis,
Harsh Beauty takes a glance into a society rarely seen and often misunderstood.
