The film takes us on journey to different parts of India, to explore the different kinds of story telling arts in India- from Padvani, a story telling art in Chhattisgarh, to Kathakali, in Kerala. Exploring all these art forms by conversing with artists who perform these, the film presents the socio-cultural background of each of these forms of story telling. Using interviews of various contemporary story tellers of India, it discusses how this art has survived in the contemporary society. It also shows how local legends and myths in the collective popular consciousness have influenced the religious motifs.
