Synopsis: Set in 1987 in Tamil Nadu following a dastardly act of bombing at a railway bridge which results in 25 civilian deaths, The People's Army, an armed anti-government outfit poses a big threat to the stability of the government and peace in the region. A special police battalion is tasked with capturing the leader of the People's Army, Perumal, either dead or alive. Kumaresan, a new police recruit arrives at the camp but his police journey is unlike what he had imagined as he is made to perform menial jobs and mundane day-to-day activities involved in running a battalion stationed in wilderness. He forms a bond with a local girl Thamizharasi and through her, learns more about her people and their politics. His empathy for her people earns him the wrath of his superiors. To save Thamizharasi and her villagers from further harassment by the police, Kumaresan devises a plan.
