Synopsis/ Description
The mythical birth of a village God, Sudalai Swami, unfolds a village’s unique journey to fight the oppression of the ‘big’ Vanamamalai Temple. The clergy owns the land, the settlers are reduced to being tenant farmers and must make way for redevelopment after the land is sold off for a Special Economic Zone (SEZ). A dispute over god’s land begins. The Film recounts the history of the land and satirises the exploitation perpetuated by religion and class distinction
