Explores the oral folk culture and music of the Bhojpuri community in Mauritius and their features that are strongly linked with migration issues. The protagonists of the film are people that are maintaining Bhojpuri migrant memories against the risk of losing them. Brought in by the British as indentured labour to work on sugar plantations during the 19th century, the Bhojpuri community in Mauritius has developed a strong oral culture linked to the \”Palayan\”, the Hindi word that captures the meaning of migration. Nowadays, many Indo-Mauritian people are attempting to trace their origins and preserve the folk culture they belong to. The film explores this effort, as well as the Bhojpuri musical tradition. In doing so, the movie underlines the importance of seeking our ancestral past and women\’s role in preserving the tradition.
