Embedded with charged emotions and family sentiments, this tragic tale delves into an offbeat love triangle. Manjula is forced by circumstances to marry a wealthy man, but she used to be in love with a doctor. In a twist of fate, Manjula's husband is diagnosed with cancer and the doctor in charge of treating him turns out to be her previous lover. When the fierce nature of the disease takes over and brings him on the verge of death, suspicion arises within Manjula. Is the doctor truly trying his best or is he willing to let her husband die so that he can have her for himself? Can the doctor succeed in curing Manjula's husband so that they are both free of blame? Does the purity of their love have the power to prove itself by saving a life?
