8 August 1942. As Gandiji and prominent leaders are put in jail, Babu and Manju suddenly find themselves a part of the larger protests--their schools close down and their father is put behind bars. Their daring brother Mohan goes underground and the rest of the family moves to Narayanpur, a sleepy little village seemingly untouched by the turbulence in the country. But Narayanpur is seething within and it all comes to a head when a group of children dare to confront the police.
