Dr. Rao, a veterinary surgeon, arrives in a village of poor farmers in the Kheda district. He wants to set up a dairy cooperative, which upsets not only the middlemen, who are exploiting the villagers, but also the age-old feudal structure of the village. Soon an uprising sparks among the local untouchables, leading to an economic revolution.
