Ratna works as domestic live-in help with Ashwin, a man from a wealthy family. Although Ashwin seems to have it all, Ratna can sense that he has given up on his dreams and is somewhat lost. On the other hand, penniless Ratna is full of hope and works determinedly towards her goal of becoming a tailor. As these two worlds collide and the two individuals connect, the barriers between them seem only more insurmountable.
