Film Synopsis:

Gunduribari is a tribal village nestled in the forests of the Nayagarh district of Odisha. Traditionally, the indigenous communities were the keepers of the forests and storehouses of conservation practices and knowledge systems. Over the centuries these communities began to be considered as “encroachers”. The Forest Rights Act (FRA), for the first time in 2006, recognizes the rights of tribal communities to govern and sustainably use their surrounding forest areas.
