This play is about the conflict between "The Dance" (the value of East) and "The Railroad" (technology). The railroad is an apt symbol and this play is constructed in the master and pupil relationship. "Loya" (a workman) who trained in the Manipuri natya (dancing style) for eight years before seeking his fortune on a gold mountain (a metaphor) is approached by "Robin" (another workman) who has newly arrived in the working area. The young man wants to learn the secrets of the natya. In the process of the education, the teacher learns more from the student, and Loya ultimately sees himself. In the finale Loya asks the pupil to help him.
