Title from disc surface.
"In 1958, the Government of Kerala persuades the Birlas to open a factory in Mavoor, North Kerala. The Grasim rayon pulp factory is open for the last 36 years. Thousands of workers earn their living trading future lives for the present. The fumes wing their way to the neighbourhood spreading disease and death. Effluents gurgle into the Chaliyar River poisoning everything on its way to the sea. At a time when environmentalism was unheard of, a man leads his people to save their river and their lives from the killer factory. Their dream is to see their river come back to life, and fishes leap in the sun"--Container.
