1984. Operation Blue Star has just ended and the Indian Army is arresting and

killing innocent Sikhs. Appu is back at military school in Jassabad, Punjab, for his

final year. He looks forward to three things: being class in-charge, passing out, and

securing a place in the National Defence Academy.

Then ex-student Balraj, now a Khalistani militant on the run, takes refuge on campus

and the violence outside comes to school. Some of the seniors decide to help Balraj,

the decision splits the school along sectarian lines, and students are forced to take

sides. There is rampant bullying�sodomy being the preferred tool of domination�

and long-time friends find themselves on opposing sides. As the situation spirals out

of control, Appu, who wants nothing more than to live his dreams, is forced to make

the impossible choice between community and nation.

Gritty, honest and tautly paced, Roll of Honour is a frank examination of the

consequences of misplaced honour, allegiance and integrity.
