synopsis: Suchitra plays the role of a Bengali Hindu girl given up in marriage to a lecherous drunkard, whose tortures force her to think of suicide. Yet she is miraculously saved and takes up the job of a Bai in a Lucknow household. She sends her daughter away to be brought up in respectable surroundings, but the husband finds her out and returns continually to claim initially money, and then the daughter, threatening her with the restitution of conjugal rights clause. When the man ultimately learns of the daughter's whereabouts, Suchitra kills him to prevent the disclosure of her daughter's identity.
Meanwhile, the daughter has been brought up by the woman's ex-boyfriend, a lawyer. Suchitra returns in a double role as the young daughter who has herself grown into a lawyer and takes up the case of, unknowingly, her own mother and the final disclosure awaits in the courts of law.
