A story of love, violence, magic and death set deep in forests of Chhattisgarh. Billy Biswas, an anthropologist and very much People Like Us, goes missing in the dense forests of Chhattisgarh. Many years later his best friend Romi is posted in the same area, as District Collector. The secret of Billy Biswas comes to light with a power that is mystic, erotic, primeval and tragic. While Sunit Tandon plays Romi and Zahed Khan plays Billy Biswas, Jalabala Vaidya plays Billy's alter ego and Nisa Schette plays Bilasia, the woman who symbolises the primeval life force of the forest. Gopal Sharman's original compositions throb with the musical life-blood of forest-dwelling tribals.
