The story is about how a single woman hides her pregnancy by staying in the temple but eventually had to be evicted when people in the village found out about it.
Liked the anthropological approach to explain the unreasonableness of the caste system in India! The protagonist violated social norms but was kind towards the untouchables. The senior Brahmin students knew the rituals by heart but physically tormented their junior. Great performance by the lead actress!
