The year is 1900 B.c. which the modern historians refer to as the “Indus Valley Civilization”, lies the land of Meluha which is divided between two groups: the Suryavanshis and the Chandravanshis. The Suryavanshis were disciplined, lived by rules and believed in living a simple life, while Chandravanshis believed in living life to the fullest and living by the rules of the heart.
The Suryavanshis believe that the Chandravanshis have teamed up with the Nagas who are demons with super martial arts skills. Now at the verge of an attack, the Suryavanshis base their hope on an outsider. As the legend says that this outsider will lead them to Victory.
Is Shiva, the rough Tibetan immigrant, the leader that the legend says will save the proud Suryavanshis? What if the legend is wrong? What is Shiva fails in saving the mighty race?
