This is an intriguing political drama about competing unions and ideologies in one factory in India. Verma (Om Puri) is a Communist who leads one union and is willing to negotiate with the factory's management to attain the union's goals. His opponent leads the other union and resorts to violence, threats, and intimidation to increase his membership and frighten the managers. Verma is beset by many problems as he tries to maintain his union's superiority, handle sticky situations that arise during work (including injuries on the job), and fight off the immoral tactics of his brutal nemesis.
