Lord Bertrand Russell in London, best wishes for his travel to Japan. Russell, a pacifist and anti-war thinker sets the tone of this 1967 film. On arrival in Japan Dr Gautamdas takes up a role in a hospital where Meloda's father Dr Akhira is director; the storyline takes us through the stark and sometimes gory suffering that radiation victims endured. When a group of fishermen are exposed to radiation from French nuclear tests in the Pacific, Dr Gautamdas mounts a daring rescue to help save the fishermen.

Battling angry elements Dr. Gautamdas helps the fishermen survive, saving every last one of them - but at what cost? When viewed in the context of India-Japan relationship, beginning with the arrival of Buddism in Japan, formation of the Indo-Japan Society in 1905 and Japan's support for Subash Chandra Bose's INA, this film takes on a meaning beyond a love story, it is a cry against the horrors of atomic weapons, the enduring damage they inflict and martyrdom for a cause.
