Filled with difficult plot twists, Daag tells the story of a young Indian couple, who experience an uncommon number of reverses and setbacks in the course of their lives. When the husband accidentally kills a man bent on ravishing his wife, or at least ruining her honor, he is carted off to jail. Before he can arrive safely in jail, he has an accident which leads everyone to believe he must be dead. The wife, now pregnant with their child, earns her living for some years as a schoolteacher until the administration all of a sudden decides that having the wife of a murderer teach their children is not a good idea. She is taken in by a friend, who has been married all this time to the first woman's theoretically dead husband -- who now lives under a new identity. Soon, even more things happen to this fateful couple.
