The film narrates a heart-warming tale about a poor farmer, Ouseph, and his ox Kannan, who he treats as a member of the family. The social forces and the new ways of exploitation didn’t spare Ouseph. He had to mortgage his paddy rice and sell his beef to find the dowry and expenses for his daughter’s marriage. The unexpected rendezvous of Ouseph with Kannan among the beasts marked of slaughter, kept outside the municipal building, shocked him. He takes Kannan home to be scolded by his wife and daughter.
