A chauvinistic Indian businessman and a liberated artist from Nepal enter into marriage in this cliche-ridden melodrama. The man was talked into considering the union to the woman by his brother, but the husband never changes his boorish attitude or overcomes the class difference between him and his wife. The woman leaves him after she is beaten and takes off to Katmandu with the man's brother. The two have a brief love affair before he returns to his wife. The film contains some great natural scenes of Nepal but is hampered by uneven editing.
