About: The film documents the displacement of Indigenous People by Indian development policies. It shows the struggle of indigenous people in preserving their Land on which development projects have been sited. First person accounts detail stories of organized opposition to these policies and state brutalization of protest. The result is a compelling, dramatic, and very moving presentation of an important contemporary story of indigenous and local people's lives.
