The old man Seetharamaiah’s (ANR) granddaughter (Meena) returns from the USA with news that his son has died in an accident. The problem is how to tell the tragic news to the old man with a weak heart. The film deals mainly with the relationship between the old man and his grand-daughter, also forming a showpiece for ‘Telugu culture’ - extended into a conspicuous use of dress, custom, festivals and ritual - as the foreign-educated granddaughter turns more ‘traditional’ than even the local people.
