Sixty-seven per cent of the Indian jail population is comprised of "undertrials"-people who have not been convicted of any crime, but are imprisoned on remand while awaiting trial. Unaware that they have the right to free legal aid, and ignorant of the nature of the charges against them, many spend years behind bars, a tragedy that disproportionately affects the poorest and least educated segments of society. The situation is even worse for female inmates with children. Once those children turn six and are released from custody, their mothers are deprived of any information about how they are faring in the outside world. "One Eighty" is the story of one such mother, Vijai Kumari, who spent twenty years behind bars, and her son, Kanhaiya Kumari. Once released from prison at the age of six, he began a relentless and ultimately successful quest to save his mother from being punished from a crime she never committed. After turning 18, her son Kanhaiya, the only person who never forgets about her begins a relentless and ultimately successful quest to save his mother from spending the rest of her life in jail. Their story is one of many in India, where "undertrials" are a huge issue affecting the poorest and least educated segments of society. Even though a comprehensive and robust legal aid system does exist around the country, for those who are illiterate and unfamiliar with the legal system, dealing with the difficult to navigate legal processes can lead to tragic outcomes. Non-profits such as the Common Wealth Human Rights Initiative, help people around India learn their rights and give them a fighting chance when faced with what seems like an inescapable fate.
