Plot Summary: "Provoked" is based on the true story of a woman who set fire to her husband after ten years of abuse.
In 1989, Kirnjit Ahluwalia was sentenced by the British High Court to life in prison for the murder of her husband, a man who had abused her for ten years. Subjected to an arranged marriage at a young age, Kirnjit admits she did not feel true freedom until she went to prison. The road she travels after her incarceration, through the people she meets in prison and her own self reflection, is from a place of dazed vulnerability to one of empowerment. While in prison a non-profit women's rights group, appealed her conviction, told her story to the world and got the decision overturned; in the process changes the face of British law forever.
