Madhusoodhanan is a private University Mathematical professor who lives a very simple yet content life with his only daughter, Mythili. She is all he has in life after losing his pregnant wife in a car accident few years ago. Madhusoodhanan has been living in agony not only losing his wife in the accident but has been traumatised by the death of other victims of the accident, a lady with her two year old son. Not only psychologically affected, but financially as well, as he is facing legal suits by the husband of the victim. Living heavily fighting against these odds, a small mistake at work costs him his his job. While struggling amply, both mentally and physically to serve a good life to Mythili, his whole life turns upside down when she collapses all of a sudden and is hospitalised. He burns in guilt as the sole reason for the collapse was the impact she endured from the tragic accident.

Having being pushed to the heavy medical expenses to cover the operation and treatment, the story narrates how Madhusoodhanan manages to succeed in the survival of his loving daughter. How his intelligence being utilised without going against his life principles in the course of achieving his goals are the main uniqueness and interesting part of the screenplay. At the same time, it also tells very emotional and soulful family values of an unconditional love of a father towards his most loving daughter which will leave a great impact on the audience.
