Tribal zealously guard their life style and ancient traditions and open their doors only with caution and wisdom. Traditional rock bee hunting by the Khongiri villagers is one such ancient tradition, still surviving in today's world but at the verge of extinction. Because of its isolation, even if the art dies, the outside world will never know about it. The window to the rock bees and the honey hunters will be opened through the main character P Makhim. Though primarily an agriculturist, he engages in honey hunting to keep alive a tradition his father and great grandfather has passed on. He harbors fear in his heart that if this tradition is not passed on, the art of honey hunting will meet an untimely death. And his fears are not without reason.
