Embedded with charged emotion and social relevance, this poignant drama delves into the trials and triumphs in the life of Poornima, a sincere young woman who has completed school and has a deep desire to go to college. However, her mother is strictly against the idea, as she believes that coeducation will spoil her daughter and is keen on getting her married. Jayaraj is a highly principled man who is involved in labour union activities. When his parents object to his activities, he leaves home and begins living with other union members. Bhadran is a savvy college student who is an expert advisor when it comes to writing love letters and wooing young women in general. After much struggle, Poornima finally gets approval from her mother to join a college.
