Vasanthi is an ordinary woman from a middle-class family. Husband Mohan works in Canada. At the time of the marriage, he was working in the company’s office in India. Mohan was promoted and sent to Canada around the time of the birth of his first child Manohar. It has been four years since Mohan moved to Canada.
Vasanthi has to live all alone in India with baby Manohar. Every week Mohan writes a lovely letter to his wife Vasanthi. After reading the letter, Vasanthi forgets her loneliness.

There was no love in the letters; He started writing the letter with full of advice to his wife to take care of Manokaran.

Hereafter I am going to live my life…”
