Summary: A poetic documentary about the tribals around
Bihar’s Mailgora collieries who survive by
recycling the pits’ coal slurry. In February 1981,
Babulal Bhuiya, one of the workers, was shot
dead by the Industrial Security Force. The film
goes into the circumstances of his death via
covering Communist Party rallies in the area.
Much of the story is intercut with painterly
shots on the body of an anonymous male
worker in the quarry.
