In a village in northwestern Punjab, a discontent family witnesses events revealing the effect of years of subordination of the struggling classes... A father helps demand justice for an eviction. His son Melu is injured in a union strike. A mother feels humiliated by the field owners she works for. But underneath the repression, there is a simmering fire -- a longing to uprise in unison.
