Bhima and Balika are poor laborers in a village and are childless even after 5-6 years of marriage.Bhima is constantly teased by the villagers because of his impotence and he so is forever in a drunken stupor. He always ill-treats his wife physically and mentally though he or the rest of the villagers never realize that he might be impotent. One day Balika goes away to her parents, but is persuaded to return to her in-laws place and she eventually comes back. One day her mother is advised by a neighbor to go and visit a sadhu baba across the hills who can help her out. When she goes to the sadhu baba with her mother-in-law, she is advised to go back and come back to that place on a full moon night. When she eventually does so, she comes across the sadhu baba who seduces her and makes love to her.
