Gandhiji warns the British to quit India on the 8th of August, 1942. The very next day, Gandhiji and some of the prominent leaders are put in jail. The people of the country rise in protest officially starting the Quit India movement of 1942. Babu and Manju are two school going kids, who find themselves in a sticky situation. With their schools closed down and their father in jail, they don’t know how to deal with the situation. Their courageous brother, Mohan, goes underground and soon the rest of the family moves to Narayanpur, a sleepy little hamlet which has been completely unaffected by the turbulence in the country. But Narayanpur is seething within and it all erupts at once when a group of children dare to confront the police.
