Members of the AMP movement from different villages gather for a meeting to discuss the state of the movement and the challenges it faces after the arrest of most all of its leadership. Leaders like Mehr Abdul Sattar, Nadeem Ashraf, and Shabir Sajjad have been held on 'terrorism' charges, being denied bail, locked in solitary confinement, all in an attempt to break the back of this movement. The AMP has fought the military for the rights to this land for over sixteen years, and the military is increasingly getting desperate and resorting to the use of greater violence and draconian legal procedures to finally displace the peasants and wrest control fo the land itself.
