Carla's Song - Murderer, kidnapper, and folk legend Phoolan Devi (Seema Biswas) endured a life of rape and abuse after being sold into marriage at the age of eleven. A spree of murders to avenge the death of her lover, known as the Behmai Massacre, makes Devi the object of a massive police hunt in this story that shocked the world - and brought a government to its knees.
