Synopsis

The river that runs through our village was being heavily polluted. I started to film the situation as a way of appealing to the higher authorities for a resolution. After I started filming, the Village Secretary advised me not to “air our dirty laundry” I’m just a 60-year-old man, if I can help the villagers to speak out that would give expression to the value of my life.
