Pushing a handcart to make a living, Dayal lives an impoverished lifestyle along with his wife, Suhagan, and school-going son, Amar Kumar, who he hopes will study and become a lawyer. The family make many sacrifices to get the child educated, and Amar not only proves himself in school but goes on to acquire a bachelor's degree in Arts. He is in love with equally impoverished Geeta, his child-hood friend, who he hopes to marry soon. Dayal and the entire community are happy when he does become a lawyer - little knowing the new challenges that await them when they find out what is really involved before practicing law, and why Dayal will refuse to permit him to get married to Geeta.
