Symbolic tale set in a tribal village at the foot of the Banasuran Mountains in Kerala. Religious superstition and ignorance maintain stasis in the village. A relentlessly intelligent boy escapes its oppressive confines and later returns, determined to bring enlightenment to the village. The event is represented in terms of a torchlight procession up the forbidding, godguarded mountains shielding the villagers from the ‘outside’.
