The film is about environmental protection which is the practice of protecting the natural environment by individuals, organizations and governments. Its objectives are to conserve natural resources and the existing natural environment and, where possible, to repair damage and reverse trends. It propagates that ownership of land should rest with the government and those who want to sell it should return it to the government so that it could be put to use for agriculture – which should be a priority. Manav, who is an intelligent son of a landlord, embraces agriculture. His brother Aditya and sister Manvika leave the village to taste the city life, like many other villagers. Manav has to face many challenges. Due to all the development work being carried out and due to increasing industrialization, there is a scarcity of water and the existence of land pollution has a disastrous effect on the harvest. Since there is a shortage of local labour, lack of supervision also takes a toll. Since Manav is unable to control these factors, he too leaves the village-like others. But if one wants to change the world, one should begin from oneself. Charity begins at home. Realizing this, Manav makes a fresh restart as he believes that changing one’s preferences can change the system.

The film’s shooting has been at Devikrishan Temple, Sukhtankar Building in Mashel, Ella Agricultural Farm, Old Goa; Vijaydurga Temple, Keri; Pazvaddo village and GTDC, Farmagudi.
