The film is the story of Sania, the Bondo boy who won a national award in archery and inspired the producer and author of this project.

Lubeidak in the Bondo language means necklace. The Bondo tribe is considered one of the most primitive tribes of India, and, with its variety of sociocultural and anthropological appeal, has been depicted in this film. Mainstream civilized society has its own misnomers on the primitive tribe: the most prevalent one is that they are very wild and against the utsiders—anyone who doesn't belong to their race. But they[clarification needed] call themselves remo, meaning human being. They have inbuilt capabilities which need to be channeled.
