About the Film: The film documents the lives of Manual Scavengers in Tamilnadu and the dehumanising that comes with their occupation. The film brings out the fact that manual scavenging is a problem of caste, class, and gender. It raises issues related to contractual employment, delayed payments made to the #SanitationWorkers and to the larger context of ostracization faced by these #manualscavengers.
