Vincent’s reform drama adapted a noted Bhasi play about attitudes to disease. Sarojan’s (Sheela) marriage to lover Mohan (Nazir) is called off when she contracts leprosy. She is cured in six months, but neither her lover nor her own family accept her back. Eventually she returns to the sanatorium that cured her, and finds happiness helping others afflicted by the disease. Sathyan plays the good doctor Thomas.
