A muslim tailor with the gift of prophecy. A Khasi youth who accidentally strays into his solitary path. Can friendship survive 1987, a year scarred by rallies and riots? The first part of the Shillong Trilogy shot completely on location in the alleys and by lanes of Shillong. Shot with a guerilla camera style that mostly involved non-actors and real life settings, the film marks the beginning of Khasi New Wave.
