A reformist social extending Sinha’s deployment of two key motifs in his work: the perils faced by women when venturing into social space and the redemption of institutions through dedicated individuals exercising middle-class professions. The plot concerns the cure of a young woman whose attempt to escape a gang of rapists, effectively filmed in ominous silence, has left her paralysed. She attends an experimental clinic run by a crippled doctor (Chatterjee) assisted by reformed youths and manages to overcome her traumatic experience.
