Kabir, a young filmmaker, goes into the ancient Hindu city of Banaras with his camera and his murky past. As his camera captures the dead and dying of the city, he meets two extraordinary individuals: Durga, a young boy who cremates corpses and Amma who is waiting to die in the holy city to reach Moksha- liberation from the cycle of life and death. Kabir falls victim to an act of violence and his mind burns with volcanic anger and hatred. His past haunts him and his present vulnerability frightens him. He has decided to wreak revenge but a series of unexpected events challenges his conviction. Kabir and his mission are at a crossroads. Is it too late to turn back?

"This film tries to understand how the vulnerability of victims of violence prompts them to opt for violence. It is a humble cinematic attempt at reminding our societies all over the world that violence can only beget violence and that ultimately it leads to a complete break down of social order." Rajesh S. Jala

The story, settings, imagery, sound and atmosphere of the film create an experience that is both disturbing and spiritual.
