Bansiram owns and maintains a small plot of land donated to him by the kind-hearted Zamindar. After the Zamindar passes away, his son eyes this plot, and wants it at any cost. Bansiram refuses to sell, and the Zamindar's son wants it anyhow. Bansiram appeals to the British for protection, which they provide, and Bansiram is thus able to save his property. Shortly thereafter the Zamindar's son passes away, and his son, Devraj comes to take-over the estate. Devraj does not consider taking-over Bansiram's land as a priority, and years go by. The Zamindar's soul, unable to complete its task during this life-time, wonders around in anguish and pain - waiting. When Devraj finally goes to see Bansiram, he finds an elderly semi-senile man, who has a grandson, Chotu, who wants to build a business on the land to sell alcohol.
