A rich middle-aged widow\r\nDamayanti, a high society patron of the arts, hosts a party in honour of\r\nDiwakar Barve, a celebrated playwright and novelist, who has received a\r\nprestigious literary award. The party attracts the literary and cultural elite\r\nof the town, as also the fawning cognoscenti which trail in their wake. One\r\nname keep cropping up in the course of the conversation: Amrit, a writer of\r\nimmense talent and potential, once very much patronized by this set. Amrit, the\r\npowerful poet, left a promising literary career to join the tribal people in\r\ntheir struggle against exploitation. His attempt to bridge the chasm between\r\nwords and deed haunts all others present at the party. He is the invisible\r\nthread binding the tapestry of the film together, his enigmatic presence\r\nfinally becoming more meaningful and poignant than all the rest.
