Set in the foothills in Northeast India, the story explores the lives of women recovering from decades of armed conflict. Preeti, a doctoral student, comes to the village for her fieldwork. Her romantic ideas of rural life are crushed after witnessing the effects that militarization and patriarchy have on the everyday lives of these women.

Mainao's husband, a rebel, was killed by security personnel. Gaodaang's husband is serving in the Indian army posted along the country's border. Once inseparable friends, they are now struggling with the bitter legacies left behind by their husbands. Middle-aged Malothi is gang raped by an armed patrol one night. Her husband abandons her, labelling her "unclean".

But winds of change are about to blow..
