This film is about to people movement in Nandigram in West bengal(India). Nandigram is a rural area in Purba Medinipur district of the Indian state of West Bengal. It is located around 150 km from Kolkata, on the south bank of the Haldi River, opposite the industrial city of Haldia.

The area falls under Haldia Development Authority. Communist Party of India has a strong presence in the area. It not only holds Nandigram constituency but also neighbouring Patashpur, Panskura (West) and Tamluk. Illias Mahammad Sk. is member of the state legislative assembly from Nandigram.

In March 2007, Nandigram was the centre of civil unrest over a special economic zone, which the state government had proposed for the area. 160 people were killed at police firing nad over 200 are missing still. All killed were villegers, no police were among the dead. But this documentary film shows the movement in early stage, not the March incident
