The main theme of the film is the Chappa division of labor that existed in Kochi till 1962 and the struggle of the workers to end it. Apart from Nivin, the film also stars Indrajith Sukumaran and Joju George.
The story begins in the 1920s when the new Kochi port was being built. Many people from all over the country flock to the offices of labor contractors in search of work. It’s a time when workers are fighting each other for metal tokens thrown by contractors and chimpanzees, and for a job that will get them an early start.
Cochin Port, which later grew into a story dating back to the 1940s and 50s, became a breeding ground for a mafia consisting of contractors, capitalists and union leaders who joined their ranks. It is a time when workers have to fight for their right to work and live with dignity. The port tells the story of the survival of a family and a village going through these turbulent times.
