McLibel director Franny Armstrong offers a telling tale in conviction as the cameras roll to reveal the story of an Indian village that vows to stand their ground despite looming disaster. Despite the announcement of a massive new Narmada dam, the determined citizens of a remote village choose to remain in their village and face certain death rather than relocate and give up their ancient parcel of land.
