In 1930, a group of Indians led by a frail, elderly man marched a distance of 241 miles. They marched for salt. Mahatma Gandhi was able to craft an anti-colonial, nationalist movement around the most basic issue of livelihood: the right of Indians to make and consume their own salt. Set against the backdrop of Gandhi’s original journey, this documentary is a road-movie about issues of livelihood in a modern, globalising India. It is a documentary about ‘the salt stories’ of our times.
