synopsis

In the land where women are worshipped as goddesses, thousands of cases of female infanticide go unreported every year. A practise which has led to an alarming fall in the ratio of men to women. The story is set in this village called Matrubhoomi where there are no women left. It revolves around the frustration of five sons and their father. They are unable to find a bride despite the assurance of their family priest-cum-astrologer. In a faraway village, the priest finally finds a girl called Kalki. What this girl goes through in this depraved world of men is the story of this film.
