The film is about the relationship that a 13yr old girl shares with water while living next to Ahmedabad’s largest landfill, Pirana. This poorly planned area has contaminated borewell water and a poor distribution network. We explore the struggles of procuring clean drinking water, especially during the monsoons when the rainwater running through the landfill drowns their low-lying houses.
