The story pivots around Raji , a young prostitute, and three young men in her life: Two college-going youngsters, Babu, Jayan and a school teacher Chandran. The responsibility of bringing up her younger brother Sudhakaran. Raji is forced to become a prostitute. Subverts all codes of male moral, socioeconomic, and sexual power by daring to narrate for the first time in the history of Malayalam Cinema, the story of a sex worker. The film invests its protagonist with an agency that seems lacking in most representations of conventional women till then and after.
