Vaidehi gets married to Raghuvir, an NRI. Suffering the agony of an unhappy marriage, she decides to run away from him when she learns of her pregnancy and that he wants to take their child away from her. In her pursuit for freedom, she meets Mythili who is a bride-to-be, Janaki who is a theatre artist and Ramdulari, a village midwife - all of whom are victims of male chauvinism. They, however, refuse to put themselves down and fight for their rights.
