    • Vengadam is a born optimist and weaver of saris. Alas, because of Vengadam's lowly status, he can never afford what he creates. At the birth of his daughter he pledges to wrap her in the finest silk on the day of her wedding – to the dismay of his community who believe that if such a promise is not fulfilled, a curse will follow. Desperate to fulfill his promise, Vengadam steals a thread of silk each day, weaving secretly each night. His world is turned inside out when a communist preacher arrives – and Vengadam tries to break an ancient feudal system. But without access to the silk he cannot fulfill his promise...
