The beautiful Subhadra sees Kunhikuttan perform as the legendary Arjuna. She falls in love, not with Kunhikuttan but with the persona he embodies on stage. Denied access to his son, and rejected by his father, Kunhikuttan returns to the stage, leaving behind his hero roles to play demonic characters, reaching within the dark corners of his mind, becoming increasingly resentful and full of anger, until one last dance which brings the feature to a stunning end.
