The story begins in the 1920s when the new Kochi port was being built. During this time, many people from different parts of the country gather in front of the offices of labor contractors in search of work. Workers throng there for the metal tokens thrown from the office by contractors and their shindigs.
The story then moves into the 1940s and 50s, when the overgrown Kochi port becomes the breeding ground of a mafia consisting of contractors, capitalists, and union leaders who side with them. A time when workers have to fight for their right to work and live with dignity. The port tells the story of the survival of a family and a nation going through this tumultuous period.
