The film is set in British India in the 1870's when nationalism was on the upswing in the province of Bengal. Bhupati(Sailen Mukherjee) the publisher and editor of a political publication, hardly finds time for his beautiful, cultivated and much younger wife Charu (Madhabi). He realizes her literary interests though, and instead asks his younger cousin Amal (Soumitra) - a budding literateur himself - to keep her company. Charu and Amal are in the same age group - and nurture similar ambitions - and although thier interaction starts at an intellectual level, Charu's loneliness gradually drives her to an intimate relationship with Amal.
