Clinton, founder and head of a firm of international engineers,
arrives in India to build a dam, bringing with him his young wife, Helen, and a
strong team of aides and skilled men. They are faced with a formidable
challenge, which involves working in daunting mountain and jungle terrain,
within a time schedule dictated by the extreme tropical weather. Setbacks occur
which bring into focus fundamental differences in the attitudes to life and
death of the British bosses and the Indian workers. A timely reminder of the
British contempt for Indian lives and for nature.
