Maya Deshmukh, eleven months married, dies in her kitchen. None of the other residents are prepared to save her. Her husband Hemant Deshmukh is shattered. He moans and weeps asking her "Why? Why did you do this?" However, Deshmukh insists that she set herself on fire. When the body is taken away, he is able to remove the pan of half-mixed flour. He realises she could not possibly commit suicide in the middle of kneading dough. The accident is investigated by Inspector Nath since it falls into his police area. Maya's cousin Avinash, unprepared to accept Nath's report, decides to get the help of Abraham Catchik Eknath, who lives in Bombay and runs a detective agency. Is Maya just another victim of a rigid and unchanging patriarchal system in orthodox Indian families where appalling incidents occur?
