Should I save my river and how? These are the questions that drive this entire film. The film focuses on the relationship between a river and people along its banks with respect to their lives, needs, desires and greed. Saving small rivers flowing through different villages is the need of the hour. It is the only way towards sustainable development. Smaller, indigenous businesses and efforts along the river banks are very important. These efforts will lead villages to become self-dependent, and also a balance of development will be achieved. This film is a journey of peoples’ constructive resistance to save their river and to become self-sufficient.
The film was awarded the Special Jury Award at the 2017 Pune International Film Festival
