Sopana Sangeetham, a branch of Indian Classical music developed in the temples of Kerala is practiced only by men. Widowed Sopanam singer Sankara Poduval has lost his voice due to cancer of the throat, and is now to appoint his successor. He thinks that his daughter, a brilliant singer, would be the perfect choice. But the committee does not allow him to pass this important position to a woman. Assisted by Appu, a young man from the lower caste who has fallen in love with his daughter, Poduval tries to do what’s right.
