Maachis is set in Punjab and covers the Sikh insurgency that occurred during the 1980s. The story examines how the life of one young man was changed forever by the violence around him. The story follows Kripal, a young man whose good friend is beaten and tortured by the police for a crime he did not commit. He tries to get back at the police for hurting his friend. His journey for revenge leads him to become a member of an organization that is considered by many to be a terrorist group. However, he does not want to elicit terror. He just wants to stand up for the basic rights he feels he, and his family and friends, are denied on a daily basis.
