This poignant relationship drama delves into the life of Bobby (Mohanlal), who, after being orphaned at a young age, is brought up as his own son by his uncle, Matthews (Thilakan). He is betrothed to Chackochan's daughter, Tina.
However, in a fateful twist, his old flame from college, Nina (Shobhana), turns up with a toddler allegedly fathered by Bobby. He denies this vehemently and goes to great lengths to prove her wrong, whilst keeping this under wraps from his fiancée.
Eventually, having discovered the truth, Chackochan calls off the wedding, publicly humiliating Matthews for the dishonesty. With nothing left to lose, Bobby is prepared to accept Nina as his wife. However, when forced to by Bobby, Nina divulges the truth about the child - Bobby's cousin had an affair with Nina's sister, who died in childbirth.
At this critical juncture in the movie, Nina suffers a fainting episode, whereupon it is revealed that she is terminally ill with polycythemia rubra vera (PV, PCV) and wanted to ensure her niece would not be orphaned. Bobby races to get the medicine (cyclophosphamide) to treat an acute relapse, but will he succeed in administering it to her before it is too late?
