The film is a visual exploration of the aftermath of the ritual of immersing idols of Ganesh on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi. Traditionally, the idol was made out of earth. Once worshiped in this form the idol was returned to the Earth by immersing it in a water body. This is representative of the cycle of creation and dissolution in nature. The sentiment is lost in the practice of this ritual as the materials used to make these idols no longer dissolve. Ganesha, who is worshiped as the remover of obstacles, has ironically turned into one himself.
The film opens with the chanting of the Ganesh mantra, which calls upon him to remove the obstacles in the tasks to be accomplished. The task at hand is the cleaning of the tank into which the idols have been immersed.
