Provocative and poignant, this family-oriented social drama delves into the sensitive subject of the rampant exploitation of women in Indian society, highlighting the abuse and even deaths caused due to forcible extraction of dowry. Savithri is a successful IAS officer and a role model in society. She is not only a district collector, but also a family woman with grown sons. However, her first marriage was stopped at the last moment due to unreasonable dowry demands and she is haunted by the event because her father passed away after a heart attack caused by his inability to bear the shame of public humiliation. Savithri becomes a crusader against torture due to dowry demands. She attempts to make fundamental changes in the social perspective about the dowry system, but can she change the opinions of her own family members? When her own son, Suresh falls in love with Lalitha, a beautiful young woman from an exceedingly impoverished family, it seems like Savithri's noble goal of getting her sons married without dowry would be a success. However, within Savithri burns a fire for revenge against the man who destroyed her family and caused her father's death. How will her sons' lives be affected by her desire for revenge? How will the love stories of both her sons pan out?
