Movie Info

When a married man seduces his serving girl, it's just for fun. As a spoiled and raw young man of India's upper classes, he is unprepared to face reality when the girl shows up pregnant, and he virtually has a breakdown. The girl, however, is made of tougher stuff, as is her husband; he has long wanted children, and accepts the child as his own.
