Join Laibi on the streets of Imphal in northeast India, as she tries to make it as a tuk-tuk driver (autodriver in India), a profession traditionally restricted to men. Laibi is not driving to make a statement- she has an ailing husband to support and two sons to educate. Once a daily wage worker who made only 60 Indian rupees a day for loading a thousand bricks, Laibi is now on three wheels, hoping to make enough money to run her home, while braving discrimination from passengers for defying traditional gender roles.
