Man feels helpless in face of certain situations. This is a unique story of such a situation told in an interesting and bold manner. Ravi is the scion of a rich family. He has a very exclusive and possessive mother. He meets Sheet, the young and beautiful daughter of a refugee doctor under very interesting circumstances. They meet, quarrel, fall in love and get married. As Sheel enters her in-laws house; instead of love and affection, she gets only a cold shoulder from her traditional mother-in-law. Ravi's mother belongs to that old school of mother-in-law where daughter-in-law is treated more as a rival than a member of the family. This suspicion and misunderstanding leads to a show-down where the mother-in-law swears by her son and declares that either she or her daughter-in-law would stay in the house. Faced with this grim alternative Sheel has to go back to her father who was lying ill and to add further to Sheels miseries, breathes his last soon after. On the other side Ravi's sister Seema, an innocent teen aged girl, falls prey to the manouvres of a prowling go getter. What sufferings Sheel has to face to save Seema from a life of dishonour and what sacrifices she has to make to save the life of her husband all these heart-rending sequences from the climax of this gripping and most unusual picture.
