‘On-Ground’ is a documentary piece developed to capture the lives of sex workers in Kutch during the second wave of COVID-19. By no means, is it an exhaustive coverage but it provides a window on a largely ignored and marginalised community of sex workers during any catastrophe or disaster.

The only question left to ask is – is one’s moral dilemma worth another’s life?
