Indranath Choudhuri and his family, a wealthy family of Calcutta's industrial bourgeoisie, are on vacation in Darjeeling. The family members are dominated by the father Choudhuri, who expects all of them to obey his will. Several long walks, embellished by long conversations, sow various seeds of crisis in the family's midst, e.g. a couple breaks up when the younger daughter rejects the staid, respectable engineer her father wants her to marry. Instead, she seems attracted to Asok, a young student of modest means who has the nerve to refuse the job offered to him by Choudhuri.
