Set in the time just before the land reforms by the communist government in Kerala (a coastal state in southern India), Onan finds his long lost brother Kora in a tough financial situation. Onan wants to bring his brother back to their ancestral village and back to their joint family. In order to pay off his brother’s financial debts, Onan assembles four men to go on an illegal gaur hunt. Distanced from their families and loved ones they try to remember and appreciate their inescapable pasts, chase their desires, make connections and make sense of their reality by narrating stories. When the reality turns out to be larger than their will and strength could handle, they learn the real nature of their endeavour and all their stories begin to sound unreliable. As the movie is about a foregone era and the truth in the stories that are passed on, it in a way questions the validity of historical narratives and the nature of truth itself.
