Virender Kaur aka "Veeran" (Tabu) is a young woman living in a prosperous Punjabi village with her mother and her brother, Jaswant Singh Randhawa aka "Jassi" (Raj Zutshi); the latter is the best friend of Veeran's fiance, Kripal Singh aka "Palli" (Chandrachur Singh). When Jassi disappears into police custody following a routine house-search, his family endures a hellish fortnight of bureaucratic denials and anguished waiting. When he returns brutally scarred from torture, Palli abandons the village to seek, first, answers, and later, revenge, eventually falling into the company of Sanatan (Om Puri), the leader of a Sikh Militant Organization. Slowly, the once-comfortable world of Palli and his extended family falls apart, to be replaced by the fictive kinship of the hunted members of the organization fighting for freedom of Sikhs and Punjab.
