In the video, Ashraf simulates a rap battle between Dow and the people of Bhopal, with the rapper herself, taking on both the role"This ain't roadkill / death's still taking it's toll," she accuses. "The field's a mess and meals are less / and nevertheless you don't seem to care."

She also talks about the fallouts of the disaster, which saw an approximate 1,50,000 people suffering for the exposure-related health effect; including cancer, mental illness, neurological issue etc. "The worst effects are the birth defects," she raps, "that still affects even the third generation."
