Newspaper reporter Jai Singh Jadhav in search of scoop goes to an interior village and purchases a tribal girl called Kamla, with the purpose of presenting her in a press conference as evidence of the existence of flesh-market and slave trading in modern India. Jai Singh's wife Sarita comes to realise that her own status in her house is nothing more than that of slave. Sarita's conscience revolts at indifferent and callous attitude of her husband, whom she now sees as a chauvinist and opportunist. Sarita's uncle Kakasaheb makes her understand that Jai Singh is the worst kind of slave-a slave to his blinding ego and ambition. Kamla's story becomes a political embarrassment for the powers that be. Jai Singh is sacked from his job as his story is made out to be a hoax. He comes to realise that he is also a "Kamla" - a metaphor for exploitation.
