Directed by Bikas Ranjan Mishra, Chauranga tells the story of fourteen-year-old Santu who wants to go to school. But it is not easy, since he stays in a village that’s deep rooted in caste-hierarchy, oppression and debauchery. Whether Santu is able to overcome this and fulfill his dream forms the crux of the film.
