A retelling of the troubles of a local farmer and retired activist, C, from Quepem, South Goa where iron ore mining had resulted in the drying up of 7 springs. She worries about the future of her daughter and her farm in a time where the local government favors quick bucks over ancient ecosystems. In a dream she finds herself back at the mining pit where she meets three figures, the future generations, who break some bad news.
