Saroja and Kumaresan, a young married couple, return to Kumaresan's family village where they hope to build a happy life. But they have a dangerous secret: Saroja is from a different caste than Kumaresan, and if the villagers find out, they will both be in danger. Will they--and their marriage--survive?
