Near Mogulmari in West Bengal lies a mound known locally as Sakhisona. Stories about it are interwoven with myth and still sung by local musicians. A dig nearby recently uncovered the remains of a monastery as well as some objects dating back to the 6th-century. This highly evocative film re-enacts the folklore of the place in fragments woven around the archeology and objects unearthed.
