The Chittagong Hill Tracts, situated in the south-east of Bangladesh and bordering Myanmar and India, has become a by-word for ethnic and environmental conflict and struggles for identity and citizenship.
Through the words of the inhabitants of the hill tracts, both "hill people" and recently arrived bengalis, Teardrops of Karnaphuli tells the devastating story of dam construction in the area, the displacement of people and the resulting impoverishment and suffering of local inhabitants.
