Bombay : our City is a film which tells the story of the daily battle for survival of the 4 million slumdwellers of Bombay who constitute one half of the city's population. They are the workforce of Bombay - the industrial labour, the construction workers, the domestic servants, the brushmakers, the lag-recyclers and the sellers of rat poison. Denied city utilities like electricity, sanitation and water-supply, many slumdwellers face the immediate threat of evictions as city authorities begin a campaign to "beautify" Bombay.
