Synopsis

Set on the unruly outskirts of Mumbai, Bagheera is the determined young leader of an Indian Girl Scout troop. She teaches her pack everything from Snake Handling to Short Wave Radio communication, at the same time equipping them with courage and determination. Little does she know that her own strength and expertise are about to be pushed to their limit in a fight for her life.

One evening, after a troop meeting, Bagheera is abducted by a brutal assailant, Kaka (meaning Uncle). He drives her to a run-down dairy and dumps her in an electrified cage. As Bagheera regains consciousness, she becomes aware of her horrifying situation and senses that she is not the first young woman to be held captive here.

Bagheera escapes but then is trapped once again in Kaka’s den. A twisted psychological battle ensues as Kaka bullies her and grooms her for submission. Using her scouting skills, Bagheera outwits Kaka, putting his fate into the hands of Shiva, Lord of Destruction, who orchestrates a scorching retribution.

Bagheera takes her name from the Black Panther of Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book. When the Empress of the Jungle is compelled to use her claws, things don’t go well for her opponents, as Bagheera’s blistering revenge demonstrates.

This thought provoking story, set in India, highlights the vulnerability of women in many societies across the world. Bagheera reminds us that bravery and resourcefulness are two of humanity’s most powerful tools.
