The Daughter Tree is an epic documentary film, six years in the making, about the disappearance of women in India resulting in all-male populations in many of the villages.

This film follows a midwife struggling to encourage women to bring baby girls into the world. In the Village of Men, where no baby girl has been born for two decades, families here are marooned in a womanless existence. It's when we visit the Village of the Daughter Tree that we discover something quite magical has been going on in a remote corner of India. Every time a baby girl is born, a tree is planted. The tree grows, the baby grows. As an adult, she makes a living selling its fruit - this way the girl is independent and the environment is greener.

They call this tree the Daughter Tree.
