A farmer is told he has to kill the family dog. Five months later, two Hindu friends are trying to get to Amritsar. These two incidents are connected by the theme of ordinary people trapped between the excesses of the army and the militant movement for a separate Sikh nation. "'Chauti Koot' evokes the atmosphere of suspicion, fear and paranoia of the Punjab in 1984." (Cannes Film Festival)
