In Bangladesh, 49 million people are currently contaminated by arsenic contained in the water they consume daily. Not properly informed, abandoned and rejected, these people die in their villages in a total lack of concern.
Through the personal accounts of Asma and Najma, two young contaminated girls, and Jamal, a scientist fighting against the contamination, this film hopes to contribute to the information being sent to these populations and the preservation of the future of our country, the Earth. For other areas could be threatened by the same problem in the future.
It focuses on global political turmoil in the 1960s and '70s, particularly the rise of the New Left in France and the development of socialist movements in Latin America.
