Set in Port-of- Spain, Trinidad, Sanskara tells the tale of a street urchin (and unofficial narrator of the film) who is adopted into the household of a coconut vendor and his common-law wife. However, the Narrator quickly realises that his adoptive parents are machete-wielding vigilantes set on a revenge-speared killing spree against a vicious crime family called the Black Rose.
