Set in the foothills of Bodoland in Northeast India, the story explores the lives of women in a patriarchal society recovering from decades of armed conflict between the State and separatist groups. The romantic ideas of rural life of the young research scholar from the city are crushed after witnessing the effects that militarization and patriarchy have on the everyday lives of these women.
