Trailer begins with Nawaz looking at a mountain and challenging to uproot it. The film is based on a true story of Dashrath Manjhi who was a poor labourer in a village from Bihar. Its a period film based on time around 1950s' and onwards. Its a story of a man who adores his wife (Radhika Apte), who is killed by falling from the mountain when she tries to go to nearby town by crossing it. That mountain has taken many lives similarly. The husband wants to take revenge from mountain by breaking into pieces. Sounds easy, but it wasn't for him. As he was the only one breaking the mountain and face several difficulties, have to survive by eating whatever he can find near mountain. Whether he is able to break that mountain or what other challenges he faces the film revolves around it.
