The setting of the film when it opens is an isolated
estate where the husband and wife along with a couple seeking
a two-day getaway from urban noise pollution, arrive with found
hopes of togetherness. The two pairs are shown in contrast –
one pair almost drowned in love and companionship and the other
eternally squabbling for no obvious reason. Suddenly the squabbling
couple finds out that life can be happy and pleasant and they
hold hands and look into each other’s eyes and go away.
And the other couple is left to moon over each other in peace.
But life cannot be an unending bed or roses. One fine day the
husband discovers that a little fair boy who has no resemblance
to the other adivasi children in the estate is his son, a visible
proof of his dalliance with an adivasi girl during his lonely
bachelor days in the estate. He feels it right to tell his wife
about it and very tenderly breaks the news to her. She freezes.
At first she tries to come to terms with the situation thinking
that this was an event from his past and has nothing to do with
his love for her. But gradually she starts to crack up.
This drives the man and makes him repent for his honesty. He
tries to make it up to her for a long while but loses his equilibrium
when she tells him rather cold-bloodedly that she has decided
to abort her pregnancy because the right of bearing his child
had already been given by him to the other woman. He returns
to the estate, picks up the child and walks off like a somnambulist
with the adivasi woman following him like a puppy.
