The aftermath of Babri Mosque demolition in India, 1992-’93, found its violent echoes even at the remote village in a border district of West Bengal, where the story of the film began to unfold. A story of friendship is between two little boys belonging to two warring religious communities. Palash (8) is the son of a Brahmin, while Safikul (8) is the son of a Muslim weaver. The innocence of Palash and Safikul receives its sustenance from nature. The greenery of the village, the river and the vast stretch of paddy fields playfully rebound the echoes of the voices and the laughter of two boys.
