The eventful story of "Yedyanchi Jatraa" takes place in a tiny hamlet-like village called 'Gadhavewadi' situated in the eastern region of Maharashtra called 'Viderbha'.
The village 'Gadhavewadi' has bee divided in two sections on a hill called 'Upper Gadhavewadi' and 'Lower Gadhavewadi'. The erstwhile common temple of the village too has been therefore divided in two parts since villagers from both of these sections of a single village are in staunch enmity with each other.
Even after having settled with all the dispute among themselves now the broil between the two sections of this village is focused over the marginal piece of land spread over both of these embittered sections of the village and it is owned by Harishchandra Bendke alias Harya (Bharat Jadhav).
The villagers have therefore have converted this disputed piece of agricultural land into a common place of being used as a village toilet.
Even after Harya's father has died after being tortured by this ongoing conflict, Harya is however being unnecessarily crushed in this melee.
After reaching to a rational conclusion that 'this dispute won't ever be settled amicably', frustrated as he is Harya takes the decision to sell his land and migrate to the urban areas in search of suitable employment and search for livelihood.
However, soon after the launching of a 'Village Sanitation and Cleanliness Program' in their village, the curiosity and interest of the villagers gets aroused causing a chain of funny happenings taking place in the village.
