On the eve of Sri Lanka's 1948 independence from Britain, poor miner Guneris and his wife are denied help from an upper-caste doctor when their child falls ill. Their baby dies and as they are burying the body, they discover a large gem in the soil. Planning to sell the jewel in a distant city, the couple flee their village, but find themselves chased by hired goons.
