Illegal and environmentally immoral mining for iron ore is ravaging the plateau region of Goa. The Konkan region is considered to be one of twelve biodiversity hotspots on the planet. Neoliberal economic policy and global trade is guaranteeing its destruction. The film bears witness to this ongoing tragedy and the states' complicity in suppressing citizens and sustainability, in favor of mining interests and money.
