Maina is based on a true story of an event that occured during the decade long armed conflict in Nepal (1996-2006) i.e. the Peoples war by the Maoists. During this period the Nepalease government deployed the security forces to counter the insurgency which committed the gross human rights violations. Maina Sunwar a 14 year old school girl gets arrested from her home at Kharelthok, Kavrepalanchowk district. She was arrested on the charge of being a Maoist cadre and taken into the nearby army barack where she was given severe torture to death. This event became a national issue at media and human rights defenders which created tremendous pressure to the political actors and government, including the Nepal Army to disclose whereabouts of Maina. It was proven that she was killed by the Army with wrong intention. A write petition was filed in the Supreme Court to take action against the perpetrator and give justice to the Maina’s family.

The film gives a message that the excessive use of powers is against the humanitarian law and human rights standards. It also advocates for giving justice to the victims and appeal to end situation of gross human rights violation and culture of impunity.
