Forced to flee to India from East Pakistan because of Partition, a family take refuge in the outskirts of Calcutta. But family harmony gradually crumbles, threatening its stability. Instead of sharing responsabilities equally, they all rely on sister Nita, exploiting her sense of duty and self-sacrifice. The family only realize their mistake when Nita collapses from exhaustion.
