Phullu is a village youth who stays with his mother and sister. He is good for nothing as he does not do any work to earn in his village and is even reluctant to go to bigger cities and find a job. The only job he does is visiting the nearby town every now and then and buying goods for village households. The women often order him sanitary pads and Phullu brings them although he is unaware of what he is buying and what purpose it serves. Frustrated with his lack of initiative to start a career, his mother gets him married so that his wife can convince him to earn for the family. But Phullu doesn't want to work at any cost.

After marriage, he learns about menstruation and how village women, who are even unaware about sanitary pads, use cloth. They often catch infection but stick to the age old method of using cloth. When Phullu's wife catches infection he really gets worried and starts thinking of ways to help her. From a lady doctor sitting in a medicine store in the town, Phullu comes to know about what menstruation means and how women in rural India still use cloth due to lack of awareness on the same.

This inspires Phullu to do something to do away with the pain of women. He starts working in a sanitary pad manufacturing factory and in no time learns the process of making pads. Phullu comes back to his village and makes handmade sanitary pads. However, he is treated rudely by the women of his village including his own sister. The only person who stands by him is his wife but she is pregnant and can't test a sanitary pad. What will he do now?
