Poverty, debt, and starvation are the conditions that define the existence of a group of labourers. As outcastes they face extreme resentment from other village folk and journey to a faraway place in search of sustenance. Once there, another series of nightmarish events unfolds and their livescontinue to mirror the age-old clash between the wealthy and the downtrodden. In a desperate attempt to return home, the group escapes to a forest where it encounters nature which is no longer benign. Will this group complete its odyssey? Or is "home" a mere illusion, forever beyond reach? Ahard-hitting tale of trauma, loss, and the innate will to survive, Aranyakand is a sensitive and realistic portrayal of the lives of the oppressed.
