Kochi: To work the soil and grow gold is a sentiment that runs deep in the blood of an average Christian. This becomes clear if we look at the migrant areas of Kerala. Most of the hill farmers are Christians. Through the backdrop of such a society, Sintosani, the newcomer, tells a story of relationships, reconciliations, quarrels and petty squabbles through his first venture.
The shooting of the yet-to-be-titled film began on Wednesday, January 18 at Natukani village near Kothamangalam. The film is produced by Thomas Thiruvalla under the banner of Thomas Thiruvalla Films. In a very simple ceremony, Fr Paulus began with a prayer to Kaliyamalan.

The story takes place in a village on the edge of a forest. The story unfolds through the life of a simple lorry driver in a hill village.
