Ralahamy, a member of high
status, dies leaving his family in debt after having
squandered his fortune through extensive drinking and other
vices. To get back into wealth, Ralahamy's wife Tackla
pushes her daughter Ranjani to get married to a wealthy older
man Victor with a child through an earlier marriage. In this
process, Samson, Ranjani's boyfriend, who had tried
extensively to get the family back into good graces going so
far as to pay off their debts, is spurned. He then goes
abroad to win a fortune.
When Samson returns he
learns of Ranjani's engagement to Victor and tries to
reach her through letter. His letters are hidden from her
however, and rumours spread that Samson is now a cripple.
Ultimately the truth is revealed.
