This poignant tale explores the relationships in the life of Achutha Menon (Anupam Kher), a man in his late sixties who travels to a new city to stay with his daughter-in-law and granddaughter after suffering a heart attack. He was a football player who had got selected in the State team but could never play for the team. He moulded his life and career to accommodate the romance in his life.
One day, Menon sees his former wife Grace (Jaya Prada) in the elevator and collapses. Grace, who is staying in the same building with her husband, daughter and son-in-law, arranges for him to be taken to the hospital and even pays the deposit for the emergency treatment. Slowly their relationship is revealed as she is very anxious about his condition.
Grace's husband Mathews (Mohanlal) is a philosophy professor who has his own philosophy of life. He is now bedridden and requires his wife's help to accomplish the most basic day-to-day tasks. Their physical intimacy is an indication that they may have led a fulfilling life as a couple before tragedy struck.
The children start acting up as the old couple revive their acquaintance. With time, the unique friendship blossoms between the unlikely trio, as Mathews also joins the former couple, with Achuthan helping Grace in maneuvering her husband's wheelchair across rough terrain.
Breaking all social boundaries, the three take a trip to a beach resort together. How will the future unfold for this unique trio?
