Of Land, Labour and Love captures the irony of the lives of the tribal people of Dasmanthpur block in Koraput district of Southern Orissa. A hilly, upland terrain rich in diversity of crops, however, its people suffer chronic malnutrition and ill-health. In their midst, Ama Sangathan, a federation of tribal women's organisations, strives to find new ways by which they can equip themselves to restore their fragile eco system. A system eroded by the felling of trees, a callous government and years of exploitation of its people. But this is just a beginning and the countervailing forces are still strong.
