Jabya, a boy in his teens belonging from an oppressed caste lives in the outskirts of a village with his parents and two sisters. Jabya falls in one sided love with one of his classmates Shalu who belongs to an upper caste family.
Jabya wants to break barriers of caste system around him but things turn 180 and he himself does things to draw that line of separation between their community and upper caste people. Irony plays out pretty well in the film.
