Gunati’s medical condition affects her prospects of marriage. Her social life too suffers. At every stage, Gunati finds herself facing questions from people about her problem. In Assamese culture, an important ritual is performed at the onset of puberty. This ceremony plays a vital role in the film and provides a glimpse into important aspects of Assamese culture.
