|A contractor named Gupta on a dam site gets attracted to a laborer girl named Champa and gets involved with her. He soon deserts her and goes to his family in town. Months
later, a pregnant Champa pleads with Gupta to accept her but she is thrown out by Gupta and his colleagues. Gupta and his fellow contractors have built the dam with
spurious cement and one day it bursts, killing hundreds of people. They manage to cover their scam in the form of a charitable trust working for the poor, hiding the secret of
their misdeeds on the dam site. Champa, in the meantime, delivers a boy whom she brings up with care, and later dies.
