This film, with stunning visuals and transcending music, eulogizes nature. The theme depicts the state of depleted Western Ghats (Maharashtra, India) in the name of development, where lies a conserved green patch, protected by the local people. The tribe inhabiting there follow traditional rituals and offer their homage to the deity of Tiger Goddess before chopping down trees. They believe, if they cut the tree without offering homage or taking permission from Goddess, some calamity will be befallen. This film portrays the traditional conservation procedure of the tribes living in Western Ghats.
