Despite her pain and complications caused by her condition, Girly (Moidu), brightens the life of her embittered grandmother, Kunjoojamma Thomas (Padmini). As the girl requires a critical operation, the grandmother finds that, once more the story of her life repeats itself; the people she loves are invariably taken away from her. Despite the inevitability of Girly's separation from her, can she learn to accept the evanescent nature of life, thereby finding peace and acceptance?
