Malli (Anupama Gowda) lives with her parents Muthanna (Rangayana Raghu) and Gowramma (Veena Sundar) in a small village. They are poor people and live in an old small house which is isolated from other houses by several kilometers. Though they have their problems like Muthanna being a drunkard, they survive together despite the problem of poverty. Gowramma makes some money by helping deliver pregnant women in the village and she is famous for her skills. Malli is a frustrated young woman whose friends have already delivered two or three kids. She is also sexually frustrated and has a quick tongue that irritates her mother who keeps advising her.

One day a fortune teller comes to their house and tries to get their attention. They feel doomed to their fate and chase him away though he says their fate can change soon. Just at that moment, Channakeshava, a young man from the city comes to their house carrying his luggage. He says he is a writer and traveller who goes from one village to another looking for stories, ideas and experiences. He requests them to let him stay that night because he is tired. The family is hesitant but agrees because they feel bad to send away a guest asking for a little help. The next morning, instead of leaving Channakeshava makes some small excuses and continues to hang around their house and even offers money for their expenses like making tea for him.

Muthanna owes some money to their landlord and when the landlord demands the money back Channa gets involved in the family.
