Suman Chatterjee is a Bengali political singer from Calcutta whose political stance, critical of the right as well as the left, has made him a persecuted and an immensely popular singer at the same time. This film which contains interviews with Suman and citizens of Calcutta, poets, journalists, artists, intellectuals and fellow musicians is also generously interlaced with song sequences and scenes from Calcutta.
