Velu (Vidharth), an illiterate makes his living through selling fire wood in his picturesque village. Fellow villager Karna's (Muthukumar) ambition is to become a forest guard but is unable to realize his dreams due to paucity of funds. On the other side, there is government trying to safeguard the forests by driving away people who inhabit the woods. In the middle, there are people who ravage the forests by smuggling sandalwood and other prized trees. In the cross fire between the government and smugglers are the gullible villagers who are exploited by both the parties.
