To keep her crime a secret, the midwife keeps Nanhi locked up at home. Nanhi, who has grown up caring for the stolen babies, develops an obsession with babies and wants a child of her own. The story begins to unravel when the midwife accidently kills one of the newborns while trying to evade the police.
