Dr Sandeep is an honest and committed physician who is happier dealing with genuine suffering than with the rich and their imagined ailments.

One day, his friend, who is also a doctor, introduces him to Devan who is dying from intestinal cancer. Dr Sandeep is struck by Devan's good cheer and is shocked to learn that Devan is aware of his true condition. Devan and Dr Sandeep become fast friends and Devan decides to bring happiness into Sandeep's life. Sandeep had once cured Deepa of pneumonia.
