PlotEdit

The story takes place 150 years ago during the colonial era in a village called Jalshuka, in Habibganj. During that time a musical group was created called Ghetugaan where young boys danced in female clothing; those dancers were called "Ghetu". Soon they became famous among people but the landlords wanted them for sexual desires and gradually elite pederasty became recognized in the contemporary local society. The Ghetus used to get hired for the flood season. The story is about a teenage boy who is hired by a colonial era landlord to entertain his sexual desires until the annual flood is over.
