Amirchand is a village born rich man with two daughters, Varsha & Harsha, settled in Bombay. The family was coming to the native place to celebrate the function. There was a custom to pay the respect to the Peepal tree before entering the village. Being modern Amirchand refused to stop at the Peepal tree. Near Peepal tree there was a haunted house, where the haunted spirit is closed in a bottle. The child opens the bottle of evil spirit who in return possesses the child. The child got fits and changed her voice. What the spirit wanted from the child? How was she treated by a modern doctor? Why the child killed people? How the child was cured?
