The closure of the ethnic war in Sri Lanka become an occasion for some to celebrate with victory parades, while yet discovered enough material to blame the government of human rights violation and harassment of ex-rebels and the displaced. Hardly anyone looked beyond these common past times into the misery of millions on innocent citizens because of the war, whether they were actively involved or not. ‘Athurupasata chat ekak’ in its inimitable manner, peeps into the lives of three war victims’ families.  

What brings these three families together? 

That is the question that dramatist tries to analyse and bring out the unspoken aspect of the war.
