The jungle major follows the story of a woman who marries a guy whom all feel is inadequate for her but this inadequacy helps her to rescue him. Soaba follows the story of a young orphan boy who does odd jobs in many households and who suffers from the brunt of the violence in an unexpected way.
The last song shows the brutality of violence in its most violent form and how women suffer the most. The curfew man shows us how violence leads to one doing the most unexpected jobs at times. The night and the pot maker acquaint us with the customs and traditions of the Naga people and help us to understand them. Shadows are the story of the rebel group.
It shows us the inner dynamics of the rebel groups and how they also have certain jealousies and prejudices brewing among them. An old man remembers tells the story of someone who was once the part of the rebel group and investigates and shows the circumstances that pushed them to become one. The journey acquaints us with the everyday hardships that people in Nagaland face. A new chapter, like the title of the story, shows how people adjust to the volatility and cope with violence. It shows the rigmarole of corruption, violence, manipulation, and politics that Nagaland is captured in.
