‘Rebellion Bejeweled’ is a documentary on the saga of grit, determination and integrity of Shri Manimanik Gogoi, who was once a leader of the United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA), the dreaded armed outfit trying to secede from India. He chose to abandon the path of violence and embraced another path to realise the dream of a better society through community organization, drives for gainful employment of the youth and women and projects for amity among social groups. In all his effort the Administration and the Oil India Limited reposed total trust in him in implementing community welfare projects.
