Aamir Khan’s Rubaru Roshni features stories of forgiveness that leave a lasting impact. Three families, who lost their loved ones to the hands of another human, open up on their ordeal.

While getting the culprit punished and seeking revenge seemed the obvious choice, the families took an unimaginable step – of forgiving them. In the documentary film, they talk about what made them take the big decision, and how it helped them get closure.

The stories are real-life incidents from the past three decades. The first part is titled ‘The Orphan and the Convict’ and talks about the murder of politician Rajiv Maken in broad daylight. The second one – ‘The Farmer and the Nun’ is the story of Sister Rani Maria, who was killed brutally in a bus in Madhya Pradesh. And lastly, ‘The Terror and The Mom’ is the story of Kia Scherr, who lost her husband and daughter in the 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai.
