The Story

Benares, the holy city on the bank of Ganges, reserves a cruel punishment for those who play with moral traditions. Deepak, a young man from a poor neighborhood, falls hopelessly in love with a girl from a different caste. Devi, a young student who's gone off the rails, is tortured by feelings of guilt following the disappearance of her first lover. Devi's father Pathak, a victim of Police corruption, has lost his moral compass because of money, while a young boy, Jhonta, is in search of family. These characters are all seeking a better future, whilst buffeted between the demands of a modern life and an attachment to tradition. And their paths are about to cross.
