Synopsis: Wosobipo ( vosobipo ) (The Spring) Sarthe Ronghang, a simple school teacher in a village school of his own village called Ronghang village. He is in love with the open sky, the birds, the Amreng river, the gentle breeze which bring the aroma of ripening paddy of the surrounding fields. He is also much endeared to the village folk around him. His emotional tie with his milieu is very strong. Sarthe feels deeply attached to his childhood memories. His dreams often turn to a vision. The vision that transcends Sarthe to a different world- a world of love and passion. All these Sarthe owes much to his grand- father for shaping his life and outlook.
Sarthe is like a ray of hope for the simple villagers, his visions reflect their dreams. But the inevitable hard life forces Sarthe to sacrifice his dreams for a better career. He gets a job at the district headquarter and decides to move out from his village. The lure of a decent life attracts him. But dreams often overrule reality. While bidding farewell to the village elders, the hopeless and sad looks on their faces shock Sarthe. He fails to leave. Myriad questions stare at Sarthe. What the life means to him? What the life is for? What he really wants to do? Madly groping for an answer Sarthe goes receding in to the past, the realm of the collective unconscious. There, as if through the eyes of his grand father, Sarthe finds the meaning of this cruel life where for the struggle for the sheer survival, often one has to sacrifice the life he wants to live.
In this supreme existential situation Sarthe finds a new meaning in the dumb struggle of his people and the silent kindness of the earth.
