Paltan is a little boy. This story is based on Paltan’s experience with his airgun. Paltan’s greatest love is his airgun. Once while trying to impress a girl he shoots wrongly and is beaten up. He runs away from home and starts organizing airgun shows publicly to earn money. He meets Buro, a teacher. Paltan learns shooting from Buro and promises to return home after completion of learning shooting. Buro is into politics and gets killed for political reasons. Paltan gets lonely again and again starts his journey towards an unknown goal. In his journey he comes in contact with a judge. He seeks justice for Buro’s murder. But the judge fails to give him any assurance. He is disillusioned as he realises that justice is weak and ineffective in the world he lives in. This leads him to dream to have a real gun one day and to destroy injustice in all its forms.
