A bank employee who steals money to buy medicine for his dying wife is caught, jailed and dies of shame. His eldest son Prakash (Vinayak) publishes a poem in the very newspaper that publicised his father’s crime. The judge (Hardikar) who convicted Prakash’s father gives him a poetry prize and the judge’s daughter Chhaya (Chitnis) happens to fall in love with him. But when she learns of Prakash’s family history, Chhaya allows her father and her suitor, Dr Atul (Pendharkar), to accuse Prakash of molesting her and sends him to prison. Prakash’s destitute sister Kala (Ratnaprabha) becomes a prostitute to pay for the younger brother Suman’s (Marathe) medical bills levied by the ambitious Dr Atul. Kala bears a child and has to kill it. Prakash escapes from jail and works as a porter in a small town. His anonymous existence ends when his autobiographical novel is published. The police eventually catch up with both Prakash and Kala and the two are sent back to jail.
