Detailing a forgotten chapter of Indian revolutionary history, Ashutosh tells of the 1930 Chittagong Uprising that was led by Surjya Sen, and how though they may have perished at the hands of the British and their loyal police forces, they managed to inspire a free India…

With most of his recruits merely school-going teens, nonetheless Surjya Sen, a high-school teacher with a fiery will to see his beloved India freed from the colonial British, devises a plan to take down the British arsenal and telecommunications network; by attacking their railway and telegraph lines, as well as their armaments. Unfortunately, after their initial wave of attacks, the British surround the revolutionaries, and eventually all are killed or end up killing themselves in an attempt to avoid the brutal torture that would be inflicted on Surjya Sen before being carried unconscious to the gallows
