This thought-provoking family drama incisively probes into the difficulties faced by widows in Indian society, as they must face vulnerability from all angles – their own loneliness and loss, societal pressures for and against remarriage, and children's need for a father in their lives.
Aleena (Asha Jayaram), a widow and her four-year old daughter Deepamol (Geethu Mohandas). Aleena lives with her daughter treasuring the memories of her late husband (Prathap Pothan) in a big house. She repeatedly dismisses the notion of remarriage. She is a painter and works in the advertising industry.
Deepamol is a bubbly little girl always playing around with the telephone making random calls. One such call turns their life forever when Deepamol gets in contact with her "Telephone uncle" (Mohanlal). Deepamol gets attached to Telephone uncle very fast.
Though Aleena remain hesitant and skeptical of the man's intentions, she eventually falls in love. Telephone uncle resists coercion from the mother and never reveals his name or whereabouts. Finally, he comes to their place on the night of Deepamol's birthday raising Aleena's hope for a better life. Will Deepamol and Aleena's dreams of a happy family life come true? What is Telephone Uncle's true identity?
