Confronted by the sudden brutal murder of his wife, his own history of violence and a System that wants him crushed at any cost, immigrant labourer Bala (aka Dasru) flees with his infant daughter Joram from a metropolis to his erstwhile home in distant forests, to negotiate their survival with a bloody past that he had mistakenly thought was left behind for good.
