When Anand's health begins to suffer due to his alcoholism, Geetha cares for him and makes him value his life once more. Due to years of lavish living and squandering away of his wealth, Anand becomes bankrupt.

Can Geetha succeed in spurring him on and ensure that he sets things right with Selvam? How will Anand and Geetha's life as a couple turn out?
