Chandra is the member of an anti-regime partisan who has been living away from his village for nearly a decade now. After the death of his father, Chandra has to return to his remote mountain village. Pooja is a little girl who thinks Chandra is her father and is waiting for him impatiently. 

But Chandra arrives with a young street orphan, Badru who is rumored to be Chandra’s son. This confuses Pooja. As the movie grows, there are several awkward encounters among Chandra and other villagers. Chandra faces his brother Suraj, who was on the opposing side during the civil war. Raised by the anti-regime partisan, Chandra has problems with rituals that are followed in the society. Chandra and his brother can not put their political feelings aside which causes rage among the brothers while carrying their father’s body down the steep mountain path to the river for cremation. Suraj is vexed by Chandra’s words and storms off leaving Chandra with no other man strong enough to help. Under the pressure of the elders, Chandra seeks help from outside the village to obey the norms and discriminatory gender traditions which he fought to eliminate during the war. As he seeks for help, he runs into trouble as he encounters police and rebel guerrillas.
