Jogi is a thriller that explores the daring rescue attempts produced by a few different faith friends that want to stop the bloodshed. It shows the sudden change in mindsets that created a series of horrendous murders in the name of revolution. This highlights how people can come together for the right thing, while also showing the other side of the battle. Soldiers who are given no choice but to follow orders.
