The film’s story is woven around family and social values portraying the importance of marriage and family stability. The film focuses on traditional culture and rituals such as engagement and roce (anointing ceremony). 
The film focuses on a non-resident twenty-seven-year-old boy Roy who works in Dubai. His family in Mangalore comprises of a widowed mother, younger brother and an adopted sister. The boy returns to Mangalore to get married and after his marriage, his wife does not want to live without her husband and therefore declines to go to Dubai.
