Synopsis: Happy-go-lucky Ishu’s world in a remote, tribal village in Assam, Northeastern India, revolves around his friends or Bhalu, his pet puppy. His days are spent with them, and with his favourite Ambika “Jethi” (aunt) . But one day, this happy world of Ishu turns topsy turvy as the village “Bej” (quack), in a conspiracy hatched with Ishu’s another Jethi Bhadreswari, declares Ambika as a witch. Beaten up by the mob and her house burnt down, Ambika vanishes, and no one seems to know where she is. Will Ishu be able to find her? What happened to Ambika?
