SYNOPSIS
The film is based on the true life story of ``Dashrath Manjhi``, who broke a mountain - for love. Dashrath Manjhi belonged to the lowest caste, living in a remote village cut off from the world by a rocky mountain range. Life for him was a daily struggle for survival. He loved his wife, Phaguniya, beyond belief. One day, while climbing the mountain to bring him food, his wife slips, falls and dies. Overwhelmed by grief, Dashrath decides to carve out a path through the mountain, so that no one else would suffer his fate. For 22 years, all by himself, with just a hammer and a chisel, he hammers away at the rocks, till the path is carved out from the mountain. It is an inspiring story of the triumph of the human will - and a passionate love story.
