This film is based on a true incident that took place during the Indo-Chinese war of 1962. The dispute was in a land near Ladakh. Indian soldiers were given strict orders that the first shot must come from the Chinese side. A resident of Ladakh, Agmo and an Indian soldier Bahadur Singh fell in love with each other. The Chinese army wanted to use Agmo as a spy. When she refused, she was badly molested by the Chinese soldiers. When she heard that the war had started, she fought against the Chinese soldiers. However both Bahadur Singh and Agmo died in the war and the Chinese soldiers were kept at bay helping the Indians to retreat to safer havens.
