Synopsis: The Kurukshetra War has just ended. Gandhari, after losing her hundred sons, is a much-grieved lady. She holds Krishna responsible for her misery. Radha asks Krishna why, despite being the most powerful person in India, Krishna cannot confide in anyone. Krishna tells his side of the story.

As the story unfolds we see how Krishna, the young shepherd boy, is always trusted by people around him to be their savior. How every time it is Krishna who has to take a strong - and sometimes unpleasant - stand to ensure justice. How Krishna must sacrifice his personal life to free India from the hungry grip of Jarasandha and Kamsa in order to establish the rule of Dharma. How Krishna merely becomes an instrument of justice. How destiny takes over his life.

But can Krishna, who has been the epitomic symbol of love, allow destiny to take away all that is tender in him? Can commitment to the State be greater than commitment to Humanity? How does a responsible man choose? Can a responsible man choose? Can war ever bring peace?
