Bheeme, a school teacher from a nondescript village in Bastar, is fighting for the empowerment of ordinary tribal women through education and employment. The Maoist rebels as well as the police consider her their enemy, since she won’t give in to a system that resorts to violence to establish its supremacy.
In a rather surprising denouement, she decides to fight the election to take the system head on. Laal Lakeer is a heart-wrenching love story set in the war-torn backdrop of Bastar in Central India where Indian forces and police are locked in a fierce battle with Maoist rebels.
