The Deonar Dumping Ground in Mumbai is the largest dumping ground in Asia. Every day, thousands of trucks deposit half of all the garbage that the city produces. And everyday most of it finds its way back – picked and processed by the many men, women and children who make a living off the waste of the city. In the film, the dump is a powerful symbol of most of the city’s people who are constantly dumped, recycled, and dumped again, while perpetually remaining out of sight. The film explores this space through Mohammad Hussain aka Babu, a young ragpicker and Haroon, a local scrap dealer.
