In this folktale, Turtle, digs the earth to deepen the water. The film is a metaphorical depiction of the turtle where in a drought struck village of Rajasthan, Sanjay Mishra (as Ramkaran Choudhary), is churning the parched, sun baked earth, to extract water and the common folk indulged in a tug of war, rotating on his shell, desperate to quench their thirst.
