Kaliyappan is a professional executioner in the principality of Travancore. He lives on the edge of a little village in the sumptuous Kerala countryside, for the executioner must not have any relationships with those who might be tried. For generations, Kaliyappan’s family has enjoyed privileges granted by the Maharajah following each execution. But these privileges are becoming increasingly rare, and the elderly man is tired of carrying out a job that has become a curse.
