Description:
  Sandhya Rani is an ageing film star who was once the darling of the silver screen. Having lost fame and fortune in a changing world, she now lives quietly in obscurity. She ekes out a living by renting out a room in her home to the young film and television stars of today to satisfy their illicit sexual desires.

Her daughter, Priya, whom Rani was forced to abandon when Priya was a just an infant, is now an attractive young woman who works as a hostess in a Karaoke night club. But she is also three months pregnant and infected with HIV. Raniís guilt at what she did to her daughter in her rise to fame, drives her to search for Priya and seek forgiveness. But the form of her eventual forgiveness is not what she expected.
