Six young people in rural India set out on a journey to find out who is poisoning their sacred river, the Yamuna, causing people and animals to die en masse. When they arrive at the foothills of the Himalayas, a shocking reality unfolds: their river has been “stolen”–replaced by an open flow of sewage, causing a major ecological disaster affecting tens of millions–to which, unknowingly, the whole world contributes. Can they save the river, people’s lives, and their holy land, the very heart of ancient Indian culture?
