The story in the film is set against the backdrop of workers’ struggles and protests against the infamous ‘Chappa’ system of casual labour allocation and primitive “work guarantee” scheme practised at Kochi’s Mattancherry harbour during the 1940s and 1950s. Metal tokens known as Chappa were thrown into the waiting crowds of labourers, who fought for the tickets (Chappa). Whoever gets one will be assigned work at the wharves or godowns for the day. Protests against this system had resulted in police shootings and the deaths of three labourers. The plot also revolves around two brothers who are on opposing sides in the epic struggle of day labourers against dock bosses.
