Village inhabitants near a forest in India are being killed by an unknown animal. Instigated by corrupt officials and the media, the villagers are inclined to believe that Avni, a tigress from the neighbouring forest, is responsible for the deaths. Labelled a man-eater, Avni’s life is in danger as fearful villagers call for her execution. Mihir Ghosh, a tiger conservationist from the city, works with the local Forest Department and village leaders to educate the people about co-existing with wildlife. Together, they challenge the official narrative intended to slander Avni, and work towards uncovering the agenda behind the shoot-to-kill order. Based on real events.
