Baheliya is a Central Indian nomadic forest tribe. For their alleged involvement with illegal poaching of wild animals and skin trade, they are unofficially also known as the 'criminal tribe'. What do their children imagine their future to be? Brought up in the Baheliya tradition, some have now been weaned away and are studying in schools. Caught between the ire and apathy of the state and the public and the their own dreams of a respectable future, their film is a story of this trap... the Baheliya's trap.
