Writing With Fire follows chief reporter Meera and her courageous team of journalists as they uncover stories and upend traditions at Khabar Lahariya; India's only newspaper run by Dalit women.

Working in a cluttered news landscape dominated by men, and living in Uttar Pradesh - a state known for its notorious levels of violence against women and oppression of minorities - Meera's team face down daily challenges to tackle India's biggest issues. 

Armed with their smartphones, the KL reporters break traditions on the frontlines and within the confines of their own homes.
