In order to defame the reputation of a school-master Dharam Murti; the landlord Sher Singh Bandookwala and Narayandas Gopaldas accuses him of sexually molesting a woman. The decision gets accepted by the local village Panchayat and Dharam, his wife Savitri, a son Ravi and his daughter Padma gets out-cast from the village for a period of one month. Dharam goes away never to return leaving his wife to bring up their children in a destitute way of living. Savitri slogs hard to send Ravi to the city for education - years later Ravi returns to his village as an engineer - and is all set to clear his father's name at any cost.
