La Satyagraha (from Sanskrit सत्याग्रह) or "the embrace of truth" (satya = the truth, agraha = seized) is the principle of nonviolence which can be accomplish by civil disobedience, established by Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. What has become of Gandhi's values today? What kind of world do we want to build? This film doesn't attempt to teach a lesson, nor does it try to find an answer, it opens up a space of sensibility in which the question appears.
