“Darkness spreads in the town that provides power to the country, and this time it seems to be here to stay. Tarapur Nuclear Power Station, the first nuclear power plant in India, was set up 40 years ago with much fanfare, displacing villages near the town named Tarapur.
The town that gives its name to the plant,Tarapur, is however, miles away from the dream it had promised to be. What really happened in Tarapur in these 40 long years is an awakening the whole world needs to arrive at, before it is too late.
Once a protagonist visits those villages. He observes the situation of thousands of displaced people and he finds that the displaced people lost their land, homes, sea and almost everything but they didn’t get proper compensation, instead they got many diseases, which were unknown to them earlier. Set against the backdrop of yet another heaven being brought down by man’s deed to meet his greed, this documentary unfolds a world unknown, a picture unshown, and a nature unborne. ” Director Pradeep Indulkar
