In the Indian megacity of Mumbai there is an urban forest four times the size of New York’s Central Park.
It is home to a community of indigenous people who live alongside the leopards.
The land is prime real estate and has been turned into pieces over the past few decades.
Now the government is pushing ahead with a controversial plan to clear more of the forest to build a depot for metro trains.
The project has sparked widespread protests and a debate about conservation and development. We follow an indigenous family as they struggle to maintain their unique way of life.
