Description: This film is based on the Indo-Pakistani war of 1971. At the end of this war, 92,000 Pakistani soldiers returned home, and 60,000 Indian Defense Personnel also returned. But, 54 Indian soldiers remain unaccounted for. Pakistan denies their presence in any Pakistani jail. Thirty-three years later, their families are still waiting for their return. Yet, there is proof that the POWs continue to languish in Pakistan jails -- the verbal testimony of someone as eminent as the late Zulfikar Bhutto, photographs in Time Magazine as well as testimonies of other people who had been imprisoned in Pakistan jails. But, it makes no difference. These men are technically neither dead nor alive.
