Ramayyar’s family runs a small coffee shop in an isolated village. It is an idyllic life until one day, tragedy strikes and Ramayyar, the affectionate husband, dies in an accident. What follows is the plight of the widowed mother Annapoorna and her two children, who struggle as the coffee-shop no longer returns enough income to feed the family.

After her husband’s death, Annapoorna’s life turns dismal, but sometimes the colour of her life returns as times of happiness, through her memories. Her son must find work, but one needs money “to buy” a promise of employment. Her daughter is still young, blissfully unaware and cocooned in the untroubled life that only the very young can enjoy. They are likely to be expelled from their house by their owner, who needs money to marry his daughter off! Annapoorna struggles to tide over the slippery slopes of life, and resist the anaesthesia of the happy memories.
