The film is the story of two families struggling to make sense of a world, which keeps pushing them to the margins. Radha and Bal Krishnan are at a critical point tin their relationship. Bal Krishnana is underemployed ...展开and constantly cheated. They are in disagreement about Radha going out to work. However through all their ups and down they retain their ability to laugh. Shakuntala and Hira Lal hardly comunicate. They live under one roof with their children but are locked in their sense of personal tragedies.
