Based on a historical short story, Moru o Sangho written by Saradundu Bandopadhyay, and inspired by Buddha’s Fire Sermon. The film is set in the Buddhist town of Sariput in the deserts of Central Asia, around 200 B.C., when the town is struck by a devastating sandstorm that leaves behind only four survivors: two monks, and two children taking refuge in the monastery. Twenty years later, the monks have aged, while the boy and the girl have grown and fallen in love. The jealous monk deceitfully persuades the boy to become a monk, but the girl wins him back. As a result, both are expelled from the monastery, and that is when the sandstorm strikes once again
