Swargadwar means "gateway to heaven". This film, through its images, portrays a symbolic journey from life to death, dreams to desires. The entire cycle of physical and psychological existence has been juxtaposed as a rotating wheel which follows the same monotonous cycle with a fixed axis. The film is shown from the point of view of a dead person whose body is burning on the funeral woods.
