Tradition clashes with modern-day morals in this melodrama. A village chooses six untouchables who are allowed to live as members of the high caste for two weeks. When one dies because they're required to live in a very ascetic fashion, neither the Brahmins or the untouchables are able to bury the victim. When the son of the village chief calls the police to remove the body, the chief commits suicide. The son then joins the untouchables, but his efforts are slighted when the son of the man he helped to bury joins in the ritual.
