The late 1970s and early 80s saw a groundswell of demand for autonomy in the Indian province of Punjab - autonomy envisaged in the federal framework of India's constitution. Resisted by the state, the movement morphed into violent insurgency. In part fueled by leading political figures of the country, the movement also became a target of their police and military action. On 3rd June 1984, the Indian army stormed the Golden Temple to "flush out" out the insurgents who were holed inside the Sikhs' holiest shrine. On Oct 31 1984, in an apparent act of reprisal, then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was assassinated by her own bodyguards.
What followed -- a terrible pogrom of Sikhs and an entire community made culpable for the prime minister's murder. This film is a story of that pogrom.
