About the film

Abhagi is a lower caste, poor village woman left by her husband. She lives with her son Kangali in her small mud hut, still they are happy. In her childhood Abhagi once watched Yamraj in a play and fell in love with his aura and power. She got influenced by his words. Yamraj only takes good character women with him in his chariot after cremation in fire.

From then on Abhagi always dreams of fire from her son after death. When Brhammin Ginnima passed away she saw a chariot coming from heaven in the smoke in which Ginnima was burnt. It took her away to heaven. Abhagi again dreamed of her death like Ginnima. That day she got a high fever. After three days she died.

Before her death she told her son about her wish of sindoor, alta and being burnt in wood. Kangali fulfilled all the wishes. But he couldn’t arrange the wood to burn. All scolded by saying that he has no need to burn her mother in wood as they are lower cast. He had to bury the dead body of his mother. The fire, Abhagi desired all her life, now is in the eyes of Kangali.
