In March 2007, Nandigram was the centre of civil unrest over a special economic zone, which the state government had proposed for the area. 160 people were killed at police firing nad over 200 are missing still. All killed were villegers, no police were among the dead. But this documentary film shows the movement in early stage, not the March incident
