His father, who had left long ago to work in some far away place, had never returned since he left, leaving Pramod on the whims of his old drunkard of an uncle. This film set in the simplicity of a Himalayan village is the story of Pramod, a boy whose father had left him in the supervision of his uncle, a mean old drunkard, to work in a far away place, & has not returned since he left. Pramod patiently waits for his father’s arrival mentioned in an old picture postcard of a mango that he carries with him, hidden in his pants. Since departure, his father had sent him mangoes that are now the only tangible source for him to feel his father’s presence in his life. Pramod’s ordeal continues as his father fails to return, leaving him to suffer on the whims of his uncle who blames Pramod’s father of abandoning his only son & shrugs responsibility. Pramod’s attempts of contacting his father fail as he copes with loneliness. On a fine day police arrives at their hut enquiring about Pramod’s father from the uncle & asks the uncle to come with them to the police station. Pramod, concerned, tries contacting his father but in vain as he discovers that his father is feared dead in a recent bus accident.
