Period. End of Sentence. Is the story of a quiet, profound revolution taking place for girls and women just outside of Delhi, India. In an effort to improve feminine hygiene, a machine that creates low-cost biodegradable sanitary pads is installed in a rural village in Northern India. Using the machine, a group of local women is employed to produce and sell pads, offering them newfound independence and helping to de-stigmatize menstruation for all.
