  • Description
  • The film highlights the plight of the captured fishermen on either side of the India-Pakistan border. Due to lack of clear demarcation in the sea, fishermen often cross over into the neighbouring seas. Often, the fishermen are captured by security forces of the other country, and held as prisoners for crossing maritime borders. The prisoners languish in jails for months without their families getting to know what has become of them. The film advocates the release of these fishermen and a change in the laws.
