After the deaths of his mother, and later his daughter, Sundar Paliwal knows what he has to do. He is determined to live in a place where girls and boys are treated equally and where the surrounding countryside is not ravaged by irresponsible mining. Sundar manages to convince the people of his village to welcome every girl born with the planting of 111 trees. His efforts have turned a desert village into a green oasis that is safe and prosperous for girls.
