Poverty, pariah women, caste rigidity: These are familiar ills in India, even today. To grasp the scale of the problem, we meet photojournalists Sudharak Olwe, Sanjit Das, and Mansi Thapliyal, who between them illustrate their country’s shocking inequalities.

The film switches from the city to the countryside, taking in nomadic dancers from the villages of Maharashtra, peasants of Odisha dispossessed by aluminum companies, “untouchable” trash collectors in the slums of Mumbai, the jute merchants of the Brahmaputra, and the fiefdom of the yogi in Rishikesh in the foothills of the Himalayas, capturing the deep-rooted inequalities in Indian society.
