In East Pakistan (now Bangladesh), millions of Hindu families were forced to choose between living under Islamic rule, or abandoning the land, which their ancestors had been living in for centuries. Shashikanta Sengupta, a lawyer, refuses to migrate, although he sends his son to study in Calcutta. Together with his daughter, Minoti and his sister, Anuprava Devi, they continue to live in their hometown of Narail, by their beloved River Chitra. However, the riots and demonstrations of the sixties end up changing the course of their lives forever.
