The first film since the end of Sri Lanka's civil war to deal seriously with the social problems left in the wake of that 26-year-long conflict, this is also one of the very few films to date made by a Sinhalese director in the Tamil language. A Tamil rebel soldier is rehabilitated and sent back to his village. Feared and resented by his neighbours, he becomes a security guard for a smuggler, while forming a strange bond with the wife of the previous holder of the job.
