Solomon (Mohanlal) falls in love with Sofia (Shari), the illegitimate daughter of a nurse now married to an alcoholic railway mechanic (Thilakan). The lovers declaim verse riddled with biblical references as they drive around in a tanker lorry. Sofia’s stepfather, priding himself for having married a single parent, is determined to get Sofia to marry his junior colleague and drinking partner. However, when Sofia’s mother agrees to a marriage proposal from Solomon’s family, the stepfather rapes Sofia and, at the end of the film, he is seen dragging her, still wearing her white bridal dress, towards his vineyards.
