After spending 11 years behind bars for killing a British officer, an Indian freedom fighter (Mithun Chakraborty) begins his long journey home. But the rapidly changing world that lies before him is radically different from the homeland he once knew. Most of his comrades have found their footing in the "new" India. But will this disillusioned patriot ever find his place? Buddhadeb Dasgupta directs this award-winning Bengali-language drama.
