Dilip, the old trusted cook of the Thomas family knows there is trouble brewing in the scenic hill station town that the Thomas family has relocated to. A neighboring village is losing its most able bodied men to sudden and inexplicable deaths and his crafty co-worker keeps warning him to distance himself from his Christian employers. Privy to the rumblings of of the Hindu villagers through his-coworker's chatter, Dilip knows people are suspicious of his employer, the new medical administrator, Unni Thomas. He also knows that the Thomas family is under scrutiny, so it is important that they maintain a decorous low profile. But, try as he might, he cannot manipulate the family's actions and things begin to spiral out of his control. Under pressure to maintain his famed medical reputation, Unni begins to investigate the mysterious deaths. He starts asking uncomfortable questions about the death of his predecessor, also a fervent evangelist. Unni is almost convinced to drop his request for an inquiry when he discovers a small clue in the police chief's desk drawer. In the end he becomes a political tool who is used to hide a truth which is far more disturbing than his discovery.
