A teacher comes to Lusibari. His wife sets up a women's co-operative and transforms the community. A woman comes to study dolphins in the Sundarbans, and the lives of others are changed because she visits Lusibari, following a chance meeting. And behind all this lies the story of a struggle for land and justice, and the struggle to live in a hostile environment. And then there are the tigers. An epic, sweeping tale of what it means to be human.
