In the Indian megacity of Mumbai, an urban forest four times the size of New York's Central Park is home to a community of indigenous people who live alongside leopards. The land is prime real estate and over recent decades, areas have been converted. Now the government is going ahead with a controversial plan to cut further into the forest to build a depot for subway trains. The project has sparked widespread protests and a debate about conservation and development.
This film follows one indigenous family as they struggle to hold on to their unique way of life.
