"An emotional journey through time and history"
The film is about the life story of Kunjunni who develops from a petit-bourgeois country boy to a left-wing radical. As a child, Kunjunni lived with his mother, her landowner family, and their loyal servants. He is hypersensitive, stutters annoyingly and cries at the slightest thing. After a jump in time, we find Kunjunni as a studious, idealistic young man who, like his uncle, becomes involved in the communist party, which gets him into trouble with the law.
