The Bridge is a colorful canvas of an unusual struggle and empowerment of a teenage girl residing at the bank of a tributary of the river Brahmaputra.
The mighty river Brahmaputra of India and it’s tributaries every year floods out many villages and ruins their cultivation. Still the people love the river and it’s green valley. Without a small bridge over its tributary how troublesome and hard their lives become only they can feel & understand.
Every year after floods they start a new life again with a great ray of hope and expectations. Through this film an attempt has been made to draw the attention towards the agony of the people losing everything every year & the daily troubles and hindrances faced in the development of the helpless, poor, honest and simple people residing in the interior parts of the green valley.
