Witness six different perspectives on a single violent incident that occurs to Draupadi, the iconic woman at the heart of "The Mahabharata". Through a combination of beautiful Indian dance and poetic writing, "The Game" is the story of a woman who resists attempts to silence her – as relevant today as in centuries past.
