In a far suburb of Bombay, residents from slums are moved into high-rise apartment complexes with the promise of a better life. While these complexes are built allegedly to house the poor, they have been seen as moves to free prime slum land for commercial development. Unable to provide for the social and economic needs of people, these complexes soon degenerate into spaces worse than the ones the slums they left behind. The Film lets the viewer experience the oppressive spaces and living conditions of places hidden away in a 21st century metropolis.
