Gradually we discover the extent of the ‘arsenic murders’ that were discovered in 1929, when a large group of women of the village where arrested for poisoning their husbands with arsenic.
Rather than presenting the historic facts, the film shows us how the older members of village remember the events and how they reflect on it. The villagers’ stories give us a better insight into the circumstances surrounding the murders as well as an insight into the ongoing male-female saga.
