Two men who work hard on the shore of the Mari river which bisects this small town on the border of India. The rock quarries of Jaflong are a main source of income for thousands of migrant workers from all over Bangladesh.

The working conditions in the quarry are really dangerous, but compared to the fear of hunger and poverty for them and their family, the sacrifice is their only choice. Basic needs such as health, education and entertainment are a distant dream for them; survival is what they all are struggling for. Also the environment has been severely affected and changed because of over-exploitation of natural resources in these quarries.
