Eighteen year-old Bharati succeumbs to Chandu under the relentless pressure of her own unfulfilled sexual needs. She then tries to save herself from the difficult situation prompted to her love and loyalty towards her absent husband. When her parents’-in-law discover the affair between Bharati and Chandu they condemn Bharati and ask to leave the house. But Bharati sticks to her resolution of facing the situation and begging Anand’s forgiveness before she takes any other decision.
