Based on the novel by Subodh Ghosh.
Bimal, a taxi driver, is dedicated to his old and battered 1920 Chevrolet, despite its unreliability. He takes the car to be a living being and even names the car Jagaddal. Working in a small town in Bihar, Bimal watches the Oraon tribe as they struggle with India's modernization.
