     13Intended as an indictment of religious 
     14intolerance, the film is set on the frontier 
     15between West Bengal and Bihar. In a 
     16fairground, a child with three heads is 
     17exhibited as a miracle-performing child god. A 
     18poor peasant, Raghubir (Meher), and his wife 
     19Seeta (Patil) hope that the child will alleviate 
     20their suffering. However, Raghubir then 
     21discovers that the misshapen child was borne 
     22by his own wife who sold the infant for 30 
     23rupees. Raghubir indignantly demands to be 
     24given half of that sum and, when he cannot get 
     25it, he beats Seeta in the hope that she will give 
     26birth to another misshapen child.
