As a last chance to save his career, he is sent on an assignment to a small town near Mangalore, to investigate a godman, one Swami Sarvananda, who, it is alleged, had stolen money, sheltered criminals and tried to rape a devotee.
He visits the godman’s ashram the next day and finds a bond building between the Swami and himself. By the time the Swami is arrested on charge of attempted rape, Bala is sure that there’s more to the case than meets the eye, a feeling confirmed by the emergence of a dubious politician and his strongman, the murder of the Swami’s second-in-command, and by a series of jailhouse chats with the Swami.

Meanwhile, the Swami is released on bail and disappears.
In tracing the Swami’s story and discovering the murderer, Bala discovers more about himself than he had bargained for…
