In post-independent India, Maria has been hospitalized in Goa and is told that she needs to have surgery. She asks the surgeon to wait until her friends join her and then recollects her life as a Satyagrahi with the Goa Liberation Struggle, and their revolution to compel the Portuguese to quit.
She has telegrams sent out to six of her comrades - namely Bihar-based Anwar Ali Anwar; Maharashtra-based Shakaram Shinde; Tamil Nadu-based Mahadevan; West Bengal-based Shabut Sanyal; Punjab-based Jogender Nath; and Uttar Pradesh-based Ram Bhagat Sharma. She does not know that acrimony - on the lines of religion, caste, and language - has created divisions between not only her group but also amongst all Hindustanis.
She then recollects how the six had partnered in order to hoist the Hindustani Tiranga (Tricolour) on seven different Police Chowkis (Stations) whichand monuments in occupied Goa and had undergone strenuous combat training. While being successful six times in their venture, the entire group ends up in custody, separated, and then told that one had betrayed the rest.
