Rural Bengal – an idyllic setting which embodies the richness of the land, the smell of Mother Nature wafting in the breeze as every breath you take in fills your heart with peace and tranquillity.

In the middle of it all begins the story of Rimli. She belongs to this part of Bengal, where farming is the main occupation of her community. The sweet aroma of miles of paddy fields and the romanticism that this setting evokes, is exuded by Rimli in everything she does. Growing up in a rural society, she has had to face countless societal hindrances, but she is unfazed, overcoming all hurdles as they come along. Rimli's story revolves around the world of one of Bengal's unsung communities – the famers.

Mired in poverty, Rimli grows up to become a strong-willed independent woman, who is proud to be a farmer and aims to help her uncle financially, and work towards the betterment of her community.

Through her journey, she meets the agriculturist Uday, a man who is adept and well-read in technical know-how of farming.

Their paths cross and they are faced with a myriad of incidents following which they embark on the journey of uplifting the farmers of Rimli's village and persevere in creating a self-sufficient community. Will Rimli and Uday be successful in their pursuits?
