From the poster and the title of the film it is clear that the film is going to be politically relevant and a socially conscious one. The film is one of the four collaborative projects between Suriya and the platform.

This courtroom drama will delve into the lives of a tribal couple, Senggeni and Rajakannu. Ill fate strikes them as Rajakannu gets arrested and eventually disappear. In despair, Senggeni seeks the help of the lawyer, Chandru, who then takes it on himself to unearth the truth.
