The hunter-gatherer Jarawa community numbering approximately 500 individuals live an isolated existence in the thick forests of Middle Andaman Islands. While contact with the outside world is increasing, they still depend on the resources available in their forests for survival. One of the main source of protein is the Andaman Wild Pig which is found in the forest. Hunting them, however, is a difficult and dangerous task. For the first time, and in incredibly challenging conditions, this film captures the communities pig hunting and associated skills.
