New Order
Anju, Madhya Pradesh, India
A former cadet in the Indian Army, Anju is cutting all ties to her family and her former life in order to become a Jain nun. But she must first pass three tests designed to challenge her faith in Jainism, one of the world's oldest religions. "My heart was in my throat while we filmed Anju plucking every hair from her head before a crowd of more than 10,000 people," says director Michael Davie. "Seeing that kind of pure faith was awesome, and I really mean that word: We were full of awe."
