Rich middle-aged widow Damayanti, a high society patron of the arts, hosts a party in honour of Diwaker Barve, a celebrated playwright and novelist, who has received a prestigious literary award. The Party attracts the literacy and cultural elite of the town, as also the fawning cognoscenti which trail in their wake. One name keeps croping up in the course of the conversation-Amrit, a writer of immense talent and potential, once very much patronized by the set. Amrit, the powerful poet, leaves a promising literacy career to join the tribal people in their struggle against exploitation. His attempt to bridge the chasm between words and deeds haunts all others at the party. He is the invisible thread binding the tapestry of the flim together, his enigmatic presence finallybecoming more meaningful and poignant than the rest.
