their home in the village of Katra Sadatganj in Uttar Pradesh. The
next morning India woke up to the devastating image of their dead bodies
hanging from a tree in a mango orchard.The girls' names were Padma and Lalli but they were so inseparable that people in the village called them Padma Lalli Sixteen year old Padma sparked and burned. Fourteen year old Lalli was an incorrigible romantic .Who were they and what had happened to them?
In the ensuing months,the investigation into their deaths would implode everything that theirsmall community held to be true and instigate a national conversation

systems and codes of honor in a village in northern India, The Good Girls
returns to the scene of Padma and Lalli's short lives and tragic deaths, and
dares to ask what is the human cost of shame?
