This is the story of a remarkable hospital in the mining township of Dalli-Rajhara Chattisgarh known as Shahid (Martyrs) Hospital. The hospital was paid for and built by the voluntary labour of daily-wage contract miners and successfully provides modern health care to workers, adivasis and the poor. The Film reveals the history of its making, key turning points of the hospital and the experiences of the doctors and worker- paramedics who manage this oasis of hope.
