A journey through Wayanad, a region of South India that is witnessing drastic transformation in the name of ‘development’. The film goes through different landscapes, showing a woman’s concern over the disappearance of medicinal plants from the forest, a farmer’s commitment to organically growing traditional varieties of rice, and a cash crop cultivator’s struggle to survive amidst farmers’ suicides. In the process, it offers fresh insights into the shifting relations between people, knowledge systems and environment.
