Summary: Set in Chellanam, a fishing village in Eranakulam, the film revolves around the death of Vavachan mestri. After returning from a long journey, Vavachan gets into a fight with Chowro after Chowro informs and shames Vavachan regarding a premarital relationship between his daughter Nissa and Sivanapan. On arriving home, his wife Pennamma asks him to stop going around and to settle. When his son Eeshi returns home, Vavachan drinks and tells him that Vavachan's father had the most splendid funeral in all of Chellanam. Eeshi promises that Vavachan will also have a big grand funeral. After some time, Vavachan falls to the ground and dies.
Eeshi's wife Sabeth informs neighbors about the death. Ayappan, the Panchayath ward member and Eeshi's friend arrives at the scene and takes control. Ayyappan asks Paanji and Lasar, two neighbours of Eeshi, to bring Dr. Gervasius to confirm the death. But Gervasius's wife tells them that he is drunk and asleep and they have to go to a head nurse living nearby to confirm the death. Arriving at the scene and seeing the injury in head, nurse tells them that she cannot do anything and only a doctor can confirm. Fr. Zacharia Parapurath, a rude vicar of the parish and a crime novel enthusiast hears about the head injury and informs the police.
The next day, another wife of Vavachan arrives with her son and family and claims rights for the body. This leads to a clash between two wives and the families. The family of the second wife alleges that Eeshi and family murdered Vavachan and they want justice. Fr. Zacharia, who is interested in finding mishap surrounding the death, tells Eeshi that he won't allow burial of Vavachan unless there is a proper investigation and autopsy. On hearing this unintelligent requirement from the vicar, a furious Eeshi slaps Fr. Zacharia, and Fr. Zacharia out of vengeance and shame declares that he will not conduct or allow the burial in church cemetery. The gravedigger, who was digging the grave for Vavachan dies suddenly and his burial takes place in the same grave he dug for Vavachan. Ayyappan goes to police station to seek the help of circle inspector to clear the clouds. Inspector comes to Eeshi's house and tells that there is no crime element in the death and concurs with Dr. Gervasius's opinion. They lament Fr. Zacharia's attitude to matters of humanity. Since there is no positive confirmation from the Vicar about the burial, the morning rain, and all the problems that is going on Eeshi decides to take matters into his own hands.
Eeshi digs a grave in his courtyard and forcefully makes everyone move-out from the courtyard, locks his family inside home. Finally asks his father's forgiveness for not fulfilling his wishes and buries him. Everyone who came for the funeral stands in the rain and looks at him with remorse and reverence.
