Suddenly at the age of 15 Chanti is mistress of the household and expected to take over all the household duties Shirley Saraswati performed. Children are born of the marriage. Chanti's husband becomes more abusive as time passes. Feeling alone and trapped in her situation Chanti dreams of returning to Bihar but it is not until she has reached the age of sixty-eight that she finally makes her decision to leave her husband. Will she succeed in her attempt to escape?
