No human being is born with a knife in his hand; the only thing which he brings with him is humanity. Siddhant was one such innocent child. His mother who was a teacher always taught him to tread on the path of truth and non-violence and about the power of the mighty pen which can bring revolutions. One night a rowdy tries to rape Siddhant's mother and while trying to preserve her honour, she dies. Angry Siddhant kills the culprit and he is put in children's Home. But he was billed as a murderer for lifetime and hence when a grown-up Siddhant returns from the jail, all the doors are closed to him by the society which refuses to accept a murderer. He does not get any opportunity to start a new life and hence he forsakes the pen and lifts the knife. But once again the pen comes in the way of sword.

Professor Pooja comes in Siddhu's Basti to change its face. She teaches the school and college students who were going on wrong path; in the hope that the present of this nation was already bad, she can atleast ensure that the future of the nation was good.

The Trustee of the college where Pooja teaches was Jay Prakash Singhania, who was also the owner of the daily "PRAJATANTRA". Jayprakash manipulates the paper to earn easy money. Police Inspector Janardan Dandekar is paid by Jayprakash to hide the case, but he is stopped by his honest father-in-law constable Sadashiv Amrapurkar.

Constable Sadashiv locks up T.P. and assures Pooja that he will try to get maximum punishment to T.P. from the court. T.P. gets two years imprisonment.

When T.P. returns from jail and rapes Pooja. Constable Sadashiv who is angry with this, helps Siddhu and his friends to break the jail.

What happens after this? Does Siddhu and his accomplices get the right to live from this cruel world? Your queries will be answered on screen in the film "AB TO JEENE DO".
