Synopsis

As India prepares to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its independence, what has become of Chandigarh, the town that Nehru wanted to be the symbol of independence and democracy in the eyes of the modern world?
Has the radiant city, whose design Nehru entrusted to Le Corbusier, fulfilled the political, economic and social mission with which it was charged?
Is Chandigarh a success or a failure?
This documentary tries to answer these questions through the experiences of some of its inhabitants: Mahdu Sharin, anIndian architect who was born, grew up in and studied in Chandigarh and who still lives there; Balkrishna Doshi, formerly Le Corbusiers architect in India; and Andr Woyanski, his head of project, who lead us into the entrails of a city that represented so much hope.
