More than half of India's 138 million rural households are beyond the reach of grid electricity. Deep within the coal belt of India, in a remote village in Jharkhand torn by Naxalite violence, two enterprising youngsters struggle to generate electricity for their village using the oil of an indigenous plant. "A Light Burns" follows the ups and downs of a community determined to improve their lives. Armed with the knowledge of how to manufacture bio-diesel from locally grown oil seeds without using any other resources, they set out on their quest.
