Film Description:

On a stormy night, a 19-year-old boy is stabbed.
Unable to get help, he slides into an overflowing
Balasaraswathi, a traditional Brahmin widow, alone
searches for her son Venu in the storm as even police
could not help her.
On the following day, the police show her the dead
body of her son. Later they reveal the cause of death
as murder.
Investigations start, the mother affirms no possible
pre-existent disputes that may lead to the killing. She
says that her son is meek, and his only world is she.
The police could not trace the killer as the motive of
the killing is unknown. The widow, who never used to
go out of her house, makes round the police station
to know of the furtherance of their enquiry.
Experiencing the outside world, she slowly
understands the structure of the society. She sees
Satyam, his wife and friends arguing with a goonda
political leader. She sees him holding the baby as his
wife being arrested alongside other protesters for the
cause of a rape victim.
