A still from the movie

The story of the film revolves around Bijit, a vegetable supplier in Shillong, the capital of Meghalaya and resides in the city with his wife Maidang and son Rifikhang.

Bwhwithi, a kindergarten teacher from Baksa is on a vacation to Shillong and befriends Rifikhang.

On one business trip to Smit, Bijit is left injured after a brawl with some crooks while he states the same as an accident concealing the truth to his son.

The truth regarding the incident is, however, discovered through the driver upon inspection of the vehicle that bears no scratches or dents as signs of an accident.

The search for the malefactors begins and on the quest a greater truth is revealed that concerns his personal identity.

This little piece of history is buried deep and dates back to the 90s, during the time of Bodoland Autonomus Council (BAC) Accord when three revolutionary friends Swmkhwr, Phakhon, and Rwdwm part in a dreadful way.

Bwhwithi and Rifikhang eventually fall for each other, but are separated based on falsehood delivered by Abir who knew little about Bijit’s family.

They develop an attitude of abhorrence towards each other.

Rwdwm and his son Abir, posing as businesses men are enacted to exploit the society and its youth through their illicit affairs of business in drug peddling, extortion, money laundering, and land grabbing.

They have recently tried to persuade a villager, Rakheb, to sell them his land for the construction of a petrol pump.

Rakheb is the forlorn brother of Bijit and the land that Rwdwm tries to acquire rightfully belonged to Bijit.

Driven by lust, Rwdwm gets a youngster murdered through Abir and frames Rakheb for it.
