Raw silk production of about 10-14 tons daily, 45-65 tons of silk transaction everyday, and a unique zari production with a market across India -- these things should make Sidlaghatta, a taluk in the Kolar district of Karnataka, the best place to make and sell silk. But even though it is the top producer of silk in Karnataka, the silk trade here has critical economic problems.

Vineetha Athrey's documentary deals with some of these issues involved in silk reeling in Sidlaghatta. The film also explores the financial aid available to these reelers, and the investment-related problems they face. The film also touches upon the health problems of silk reelers.
