Synopsis

It is a story of hope, lost and found through resolute perseverance even in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. Alaari copes with her husband’s death for over a decade, who was killed in a cross firing between rebel cadres and state forces. A new concern emerges for Alaari as her son Erak, who is now all grown up, when the political climate is heating up to rebel against the majoritarian state. Many Bodo youth are seen joining the separatist movement inspired by their iconic leaders such as Mao and Guevara, gaining momentum. Will her son join the movement too?
