Synopsis

Punjab. The mid 1980s. A train journey to Amritsar. A dog that barks. Unwelcome guests late in the night and early morning. Dilemmas and fears.
Based on the short stories of Waryam Singh Sandhu, it's a reflection on the undercurrents of the 1980s in a fear ridden Punjab post the Bluestar.
