This is the true story of Narsimha, a farm labourer, who desperately needed money to fund the education of his children. He finds himself in the midst of Naxalites where his mission becomes a mere subset of a greater cause that the militant's pursue. From being a mere cook to actually training in weapons to being involved in shootouts and kidnapping, Narsimha himself in the thick of life he had never bargained for. A confrontation with the group leaders turns his life upside down; he is now on the run from both law and the militants.
Narsimha has to take one vital decision that could make or break him. But the decision ends in creating a conflicting situation that has him torn between conscience and survival. Red Alert- The War Within hurtles towards a cathartic end that blows apart a few myths about life and the complicated systems that engulfs it. Red Alert- The War Within is a volatile account of today's times...culled straight from today's torrid headlines
