Set against the background of a boarding school in Ooty, amidst the pristine and picturesque milieu of the Nilgiris, this romantic tale follows the coming-of-age experiences of Pradeep Menon, a troubled teenager. He is regarded as a trouble-maker in school, and is often punished by his teachers and headmaster, often severely. When beautiful Daisy Thomas joins this school, he makes fun of her on the very first day, thus beginning a series of misadventures that result in more punishment for him. This also brings him close to Daisy leading to a mutual attraction between the two youngsters.
Daisy understands why Pradeep is so aggressive, and offers him considerable support. She is shocked to see how rude he is toward his mother, Malathi Menon, but is unable to do anything about it. She later comes to know the reason behind his hatred was that his mother had decided to re-marry after his father's death and in the process had started spending less time with him.
Things improve considerably when Malati is confined in a hospital and Pradeep goes to visit her, thereby re-establishing the closeness in their relationship. Pradeep starts to respond positively to Daisy's support and is all set to turn a new leaf.
Then Pradeep's world is turned upside down when he witnesses Daisy in the arms of James - a complete stranger. Shocked at this, Pradeep has no alternative but to regress to his self-destructive phase, alienating himself from everyone. He later comes to know that the other man, James, was in fact her older brother and that she is a terminally ill patient. Will Pradeep be able to redeem himself?
