Dweepa

shows individuals fighting against an overpowering political system. It is the story of a family of four who refuse to leave their ancestral house threatened by a nearby dam. With incessant rains the authorities are set to release water which will engulf the entire village. The movie shows the director's fascination for rain. He uses this metaphor of water symbolising life to portray the human trauma behind the process of displacement.
