Synopsis: When Kolappan\'s father dies, he\'s told that he can\'t carry his father’s body through the common pathway because he’s a Dalit. He seeks help from official powers only to find that they are equally casteist. Refusing to be cowed down, Kolappan begins a protest and finds his village standing by him. Based on an actual incident, Kolappan’s story is a look at the deeply-embedded prejudice that Dalits have endured and against which they are rising.
