After returning to his home. He finds out his village was ravaged in the 2008 Kosi flood.

The movie, therefore narrates his entire struggle to restructure the village from a scratch.
Among others, other personalities also came to light like Anurita Jha and Kranti Prakash Jha, who happen to be the main leads of the film. However, “Pankaj Jha” (as Brahma Singh) plays the character of a villain.
