Period drama

While excavating a palace in Calcutta, the foreman Bhoothnath discovers a skeleton buried among the ruins. On the skeleton’s arm there is a gold bangle. Bhoothnath recognises that it belongs to Chhoti Bahu, the young mistress of the house. In flashback, we see the tragic story of Chhoti Bahu unfold. It is the turn of the 20th century, a time of great change in Bengal. The rich landlords are losing their grip on power and the world around them is changing unrecognisably. An extraordinary tale of tragic and unforgettable characters.
