The journey is long and winding. Starting from the steep tea estates of Munnar and Darjeeling in the North-East. The jagged history of the tea plucker is as rigid as the lines of tea bushes he/she plucks.
Working in the plantation 12 hours a day, a tea plucker is given a home as long as he works. He tries to move out of the cycle of work by educating his children, but if he leaves in between he loses his home. So what the next generation does? It falls in line and continues the cycle of exploitation.
