It is a cry of mourning, the wail of a widow, the dumb shriek of a motherless child. The iron curtain has finally been lifted and a harsh reality lurks in front of us like a naked corpse. The film captures the socio-political reality of contemporary Kashmir and debates the causes of eradication of the ancient cultural heritage of this mini diverse civilisation. It also depicts Kashmir without her original children - the Pandits. The flight of migratory and wounded birds is the main motif in the film. The film is based on the documented account of the actual events which be occurred in Kashmir between 1989 and January 1998. It states that neither it was hindu nor the muslim who suffered on the unfortunate date of 19 January 1990 but it was the humanity which suffered. The story told through the eyes of a nationalist muslim professor, Bashir Ahmed, a professor, a humanitarian has got so moved with the psychosis of Kashmir valley that he doesn't have trust on his own kid. In the morning he refuted the fundamentalists and terrorists in front of his son but when finds that his son is not at home takes that his son is the informer of terrorists and thus spends the whole day in this fear that his son will bring the fundamentalists and will kill him.
