The film is based on the real story of two elderly women, Chandro Tomar (86) and Prakashi Tomar (81), from village Johri in Uttar Pradesh who struggle hard to learn the art of shooting. Their earnest efforts help them achieve remarkable success in the sport with both going on to win numerous medals in competitions.
