Rupa is a bright-eyed Bangladeshi teen who dreams of having her own career. Once she joins a local tech-training program and enjoys the liberties of a new bicycle and a cell phone, her professional goals appear within reach—until an unexpected event throws her off-balance. Following Rupa’s journey over four years, Digitalkarma offers an intimate, empathetic portrait of a young woman in rural South Asia trapped between present-day aspirations and the traditions of the past.
