After being found to be involved in a high-profile cheating scandal concerning entrance exams, Pawan, a third year medical student, has been asked to vacate his hostel room. In the midst of all this, his estranged girlfriend, a nurse working in a small nursing home, informs him of his father being admitted in the same establishment. The owner of the nursing home is Dr. Kailash Sagar, the linchpin of the cheating scam, who has been in jail for the last 6 months and has been recently released on bail. Abandoned by the society, boycotted by his peers and forced to give up on his dreams of becoming a doctor, Pawan is driven to take help from the very person who represents all that he detests and who, according to him, snatched away all that was rightfully his.
