It is the story of a young wife (Krishnakumari) living in a joint family, away from her husband, an Army doctor (Bhagavathi) who is in a war. An artist (Shanmugham) is given refuge in the husbands’ home. Taking advantage of her loneliness, the artist seduces her, and she becomes pregnant. The painter is thrown out of the house, and he goes in search of peace. In Bombay, he is involved in a car accident in which the doctor is travelling. And, the doctor admits the artist in the hospital where he begins to work. The injured artist tells his tale of woe and the wrong he did to a woman, and the doctor is shocked to find that she is his wife. What happens then forms the rest of the story.
