This film is a glimpse into the lives of people who are leading a better socio-economic life after voluntary relocation from the Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary. These forest-dwellers did not have access to basic necessities of life such as education, health care and infrastructure like roads. These voluntarily relocated people speak for themselves and share their experiences with us. Post the voluntary relocation project, while people are leading a better life with access to better livelihood, wildlife has been thriving inside the sanctuary, which is depicted in this film.
