Deprived of motherly love at a tender age, Huchheeri is married off by her stepmother to a drunkard, separating her from her loving father and idyllic village.
Huchheeri’s daughter informs her of chicken curry being prepared at the Chieftain’s home. Huchheeri cooks some rice in the hope of getting some chicken curry to fulfill her daughter’s craving just once. Since she had lost her mother at a very young age, she would undergo any hardship to make her ten year old happy. But, will she be successful?
The narration of events that happen in a span of 24 hours in Hucheeri’s life is a larger story of both traditional and modern women’s struggles who have had to fight injustices just to survive in-spite of patriarchal and societal pressures.
