Small town bureaucracy in a small Indian town provides the focus of this film. Upon receiving his education Agastya Sen, a Bengali, joins the public service where he is assigned to work in a tiny village as an assistant to the collector. He does not speak the local language. Sen is set up in a dreadfully primitive little place where his only company is a small frog. He misses his friends in the city. He has trouble adjusting to the quaint village and it's eccentric, provincial ways.
