A story of ambition and resigned frustration set
in Kerala’s old Syrian Christian community, a
milieu unfamiliar to the noted Malayalam
novelist, scenarist and director Padmarajan.
Alice (Suhasini), who lives with her brother
(P. Prakash), is a teacher at the reputable
Ootacamund convent school. An MP, Xavier
Puthooran (J. Prakash), sacrifices his wife and
son for his career. The MP’s neglected and
unruly son Ravi (Rahman in his debut role), is
foisted upon the school and Alice manages to
turn him into a prize student. Her boyfriend
Capt. Thomas (Mammootty) feels intensely
jealous of the attention Alice bestows upon
Ravi. He kills the boy apparently by accident,
but later surrenders to the police, leaving Alice
frustrated in all aspects of her life.
