This documentary discusses the contrasting pictures of the past and present states of the Mundakan paddy fields in Kerala; a pointer to the sad story of the decline of an agrarian society in the modern world. The topography of paddy fields before the farmer Chingan's eyes is changing. In the name of development, the land-mafia pierces the heart of the landscape and cut into pieces to be sold at exorbitant prices. Chingan sees all these with shock and dismay. When Chingan hands over to his grandson Kannan the rice seeds that he has kept for years it silently conveys a message to future generations about the need to preserve and revive the agrarian culture of Kerala.
