The story is about a popular novelist Samaresh Sanyal, who suddenly started suffering from mental depression and the doctor diagnosed it as schizophrenia.
Madhuri, who was a big admirer of Samaresh and subsequently became his wife, acted as a guardian and nurse and gradually led him towards the path of recovery. During this period Samaresh engaged himself in writing thriller, crime and murder mysteries. All through this period of time he was mentally supported not only by his wife but also by the doctor, who is an old family friend.
