While the tragedy brought with it much horror and grief, there were many stories of inspiration, selflessness and bravery that the world needs to hear about. It is these very stories that we have attempted to capture in this new documentary. With exclusive coverage of the disaster site one year hence, this special also talks about efforts of rebuilding the area to restore Kedarnath to the place that it used to be."
