In a small village located deep in Tamil Nadu, a poor family receives a visit from a fortune teller. The fortune teller predicts that their luck will change dramatically overnight. On the same day, a stranger arrives and asks if they can stay the night. The Stranger gets to know about the financial issues that the family is having- in the meantime, the family gets to know that a local rich man has been robbed and the thief ran away with cash and gold. The stranger shows them a box full of money and jewels and says his luck changed by working hard so could theirs. The daughter in the meantime talks the parents into killing the stranger and stealing the gold and cash to solve their problems. Even though parents are hesitant they agree to the plan. A couple of times plan does not go well, in the end, the daughter kills the stranger by cutting his throat when he is sleeping.

In the meantime the father is getting drunk and the bar boy tells him he knows there is a stranger in his house and father asks how and he tells him. The father out of shock comes home as fast as he can – and tells the family the truth- the stranger was none other than their long lost son who had run away when he was 10 years old- had come back after earning money by working hard so he could solve the family problems. The family is devastated, the mother and daughter consume the poison intended for the stranger and die, and the father uses all the cotton in the house to set the house on fire and burning along with it.
