In 1993, Rajakannu and Sengeni are a couple from the oppressed Irula tribe who labour in the fields of upper-caste men to control rat infestation and catch venomous snakes. Rajakannu is called to a rich man’s dwelling to catch a snake that sneaked inside a room.
The next day, a case of burglary is reported when the wife of the man reports missing jewellery pieces from her closet and raises doubt on Rajakannu. The police invade Rajakannu’s home to find evidence. Rajakannu had left the town earlier for work. During the invasion, the police brutally beat and unlawfully detain the pregnant Sengeni.
