Like Dust We Rise

This is a film about those who clean the city of dreams. It brings to the fore, through the narratives of a few BMC workers, the lackadaisical workings of the Bombay Municipal Corporation resulting in injustice to the workers. Kali, Murugan, Anthony, Aziz, Saroja and Rajeshwari carry the narrative forward as they narrate personal incidents of injuries and accidents on field, for which they have not received any compensation. The indifference of the system and its wrongdoings have united all BMC contractual labours into a Union whose fight goes on. This is a film about grit and gumption.
