Experiencing Interruptions?


Synopsis - 30 ft

We live in a world of diversity; a world of different people, cultures, ideas and ways of life. Yet, despite our many differences, the struggles we share unite us. Due to increasing global warming and rapidly growing populations, water scarcity has emerged as one of the most critical global struggles. Affecting nearly 1.2 billion people from across the planet, it is clear that the time for action is now. But while water scarcity is universal, implementing a universal solution to counter it has proven difficult. 30 ft delves into the lives of Manjunath, Lalitha and Vinayak, each of whom originates from a different background and leads a different life. 30 ft sheds light on how these distinct farmers have minimized local impact of water scarcity through Water tank digging, and how Water tank digging could be the universal solution the world’s been waiting for.
