The pivotal character in this evocative tale is Kunjunni Mash (Adoor Bhasi), who is a dedicated school teacher. His daughter (Sunanada) falls in love with the Panchayat President's (T. G. Ravi) son (Sathish Menon). However, In order to go through with the marriage, there is a heavy demand for cash in the guise of dowry. As he has spent his life giving away the treasure of knowledge to his students, but not been selfish enough to accumulate wealth in the process, the dignified teacher is now forced to endure the ignominy of having to beg.

Will his students come forward to solve his problem and ensure that his daughter is happily married?
