There are men who squirm at the mention of a woman’s period. And then there’s Muruganantham, a school dropout who realised that the majority of women in India couldn't afford sanitary pads and decided to do something about it. With limited resources at his disposal, he adopted extreme methods to conduct his research. It wasn't long before his community shunned him. Even his wife decided that he was a pervert and left him. But that was then. Today, Murugananthan is hailed as a visionary who is empowering rural woman accross India. Menstrual Man tells the inspiring story of an unlikely hero who stood up for India's ignored. A critical and audience favourite, the film underscores the importance of empowering women to combat poverty, and the power in every individual to make a difference.
