By clicking across the different timelines, the audience can easily have a feel on how friendship played a crucial role in 1971.
In the present time setting, a young man is shown to be bidding farewell to his family before he heads abroad for higher studies while in the 1971 timeframe, a young man is shown to be bidding farewell to his family before he joins the liberation war.
In another scene, in the present time, a blind young man saves his friend as he struggles to prepare for an exam, while in 1971 timeframe, a blind young man asks his friend to act like a blind man to help him have an easy passage through the military check-post on his way to an operation.
