This is a documentary film on rainwater harvesting in Dewas, India. Following the complete exhaustion of groundwater, the farming communities began to suffer growing debts and losses. Food, fodder and drinking water became scarce. There seemed to be no hope until the seed of a new idea took root when one farmer went against the wishes of his family and dug a pond in his fields for collecting rainwater. In this awe-inspiring tale of innovation and courage, the district administration joined forces with the villagers to bring water to this arid land.
