Leaving the harsh and unrelenting drought-like conditions in her village, Veeram (Milind Gunaji) and his family travel to the big city to lead a better life. Veeram gets involved in a crime syndicate, and eventually becomes the leader. When he is assassinated, his wife Rambhi (Shabana Azmi) takes on the responsibility of the leadership with such a ruthlessness as never seen before, and it is not before long that she reigns unchallenged. Until one day she dared to get a Hindu girl and Muslim boy get married in her community is when she starts to notice her world collapsing all around her, and she has to use every ounce of strength and experience she has gained in her lifetime to overcome this challenge.
