"In the Shadow of the Naga" - a film that serves as a "Mirror of Truths" - is an action-drama film that takes the audience into the dark side hidden in the deepest part of human's mind. It tests whether a human's mind is truly unfathomable and incomprehensible. When the inner battle between desire and faith is the ultimate test, do you dare to proclaim that your faith would prevail?

The film tells a story of three robbers - Pan, Por, and Singh - who have robbed a money truck, and are being chased by the police. With nowhere to run, they decide to hide the booty underneath the ground in a temple. When they come back to dig up the money, they are astonished to find that a monastery has been built directly above it. The thieves have no other options but to get themselves ordained into the temple just for a chance to dig up the booty. That is the start of an unexpected story which is about to get turned upside down.

Can religion and faith really free ourselves from dark desires hidden deep inside us? Does righteousness still exist in this world?
