In all Gautam Ghosh's films water is a recurring metaphor. This is a moving tale of a harijan couple who are fugitives from their village in Bihar. They escape to Kolkata only to be shelterless and jobless. With hunger gaping at them the husband gets a weird assignment - he has to make a herd of pigs cross a river. The movie shows the director's deep social insight into political systems.
