Kanaklata Barua has made a great contribution in the history of India’s freedom struggle of 1942 by sacrificing her life for the country; she is a little-known figure for the rest of the country. The 16-year-old Kanaklata displayed rebellious nationalism, determination, made her paramount hero and a robust impresa of independence. Hailing from an onerous social background, Kanaklata rose above the circumstances through guts and determination to fight for the country’s freedom. It is only people of Assam that are aware of the fact that how the 16-year-old girl was gunned down by the police while she was trying to hoist the national flag at the local police station. Kanaklata had the quality to adore herself to everyone with her emotionally popular and fellow-feeling for her near and dear ones. She always had the guts to speak up against any injustice happening in the society.
The story of the film is seen through the eyes of a young Assamese girl, a hardnosed cadre from a militant outfit who unintentionally bumped into Kanaklata’s village, now long pasts its former fame, rediscovered the life story of the forgotten warrior with whom she finds a lot of affection. This film narrates two strings that run alongside while aligning the story of two women who belongs to two generations in two different ‘freedom movements’ by conveying their voices of revolt against insecurity, betrayal, and oppression.
