Tamil Nadu, 1968 - Village landlords rule over a feudal system that forces peasants to break their backs in the fields or suffer beatings as punishment. In the misery of their daily lives it is little wonder that the communist party begins to gain traction, a small spark of defiance spreading from villager to villager. As communities across the region begin to take a stand against the landlords, the landlords vow to break them, party organisers suffer grisly deaths and the flow of food into the marketplaces dries up. But it only serves to make the villager's resistance burn more fiercely. Finally the landlords descend on one village to set an example to the others.
