BTC follows young men from the Ghitori village in India who are having trouble adjusting to the fast development of the urban environment, the disappearance of the countryside and consumer capitalism. Delhi is constantly spreading through the urbanisation of villages and the surrounding forests, shopping centres are replacing agricultural fields, and the life the local community is familiar with is disappearing.
