Stop me if you have heard this one before - an Irishman, a former Hindu monk and a film maker get into a tuktuk...
Join Ravinol, as he drives a tuktuk 1800km on treacherous roads down the west coast of India. His purpose to raise money for a girls education charity and revisit the village he lived in 20 years ago, as a monk.
He seeks to understand why in a country where he learnt women were to be respected and protected are girls experiencing such a hard time accessing education?
We will meet girls whose lives have been mapped out for them, whose opinions are considered unimportant and who are set to be married off from 14 years old.
Against all odds, some of these girls are stepping into positions of leadership, challenging the patriarchal thinking so engrained in society and paving the way for other girls to realise their full potential.
When Ravinol interviews a senior monk in the village he lived in 20 years ago, he is forced to confront the strong patriarchal attitudes that influenced him during that time in his twenties and consider what he and men and boys in general can do to help.
The Road to Change is a story about overcoming deeply entrenched social, cultural and religious beliefs to help create a fairer world for women and girls.
This is a journey of adventure, danger, hope and transformation.
