Mamata Rath adopts an abandoned baby at a Krishna Temple, and names her Niyati. Her drunken husband is abusive and violent and doesn't welcome the arrival of the baby. As time progresses, his hatred for Niyati takes virulent forms – until one point in time when he winds up leaving her to the mercy of his creditors – where he lets them rape her to satiate the debt he owed them. Niyati and her mother fight it out in court, and assert their rights. With time, Niyati marries a bright young doctor who takes care of her father's health, and supports her. With his passing, she is left to the mercy of her rather harsh son, until Diya, a young girl in the neighbourhood, comes into her life. The three women take on the trials and tribulations of life, and attain their Kalachakras in the heart of existence.
