Synopsis

Shankaran, a young Dalit man, befriends an American lepidopterist, for whom he helps catch butterflies, including the rare "Papilio Buddha". Shankaran’s father is a communist who feels let down by the failure to achieve equal rights. Meanwhile, Manju, a strong-minded woman who has a job as a rickshaw driver, struggles to avoid prejudice in a male-dominated career. When Manju hits a lecherous union leader, and Shankaran is arrested for illegally catching butterflies, the events politicize and radicalize the community and lead to acts of rebellion.
