Rajiv Pator, a PhD candidate at Gauhati University, visits the Muslim dominated, remote villages of Nellie to look into the events leading up to the massacre of Muslims on February 18, 1983, also known as the Nellie massacre, the darkest chapter in the socio-political history of Assam. His objective is to discover the truth about what transpired. Does he miss the contemporary scenario of Nellie? Can Rajiv find out the root reason of the massacre?
