In her very first assignment as a tv investigative reporter, an intrepid young woman named Anasuya uncovers child slave labour exploitation by a prominent politician. An orphan herself, Anasuya adopts the young victim, a little girl named Lakshmi. Anasuya is now assigned to unearth the true facts behind a series of bizarre murders about which the police have oddly refused to reveal details to the public. She cleverly outfoxes Anand, a would-be amorous police inspector assigned to the special task force, into inadvertently revealing that some wacko has been murdering women -- removing one, always different, body part from each corpse before leaving behind a single red rose. The police belief that the killer only targets women is abruptly shattered when Anasuya's elderly male landlord is killed ... and Anasuya witnesses the killer fleeing the scene. Anasuya and Anand must work together to identify the suspect and prevent him from killing more people. But nothing is quite as it seems! Will Anasuya and Anand succeed in finding the killer before he kills them? Why is the serial killer on this peculiar path? And what is the unexpected connection with young Lakshmi?
