Manimaran is forced to run away leaving the fainted Saravanan on top of a lorry. The scene then shifts to 15 years later at the house of Gnanamoorthy (Sathyaraj), a politician in the Mettupalayam district, who lives with his wife Padma (Seetha), daughter Parvathy (Jyothika), and his mother (Sowcar Janaki). Parvathy spends her days in sorrow, hoping that her aggressive younger brother Saravanan (Navneeth Madhav) who had left the home 15 years ago, would return home. Her family too believes that the miracle may happen one day.
