Does money corrupt the way family members look at one another? Vinuta marries Girish, a bank clerk, and starts living with his family in Bangalore. She adjusts to her new family well, looking after hae husband, father-in-law and mother-in-law’s constant criticism. But when Girish’s elder brother, Chandru, who is in the US, decides to get married, Vinuta has to listen to the endless comparisons made between her and Chandru’s wife, the ‘Dollar Bahu’, whose husband earns the valuble dollars that have brought the family its recent affluence. Vinuta slowly loses her health and peace of mind. Then Gouramma decides to visit her US-based son and daughter-in-law. Once there, she sees how liberating life can be, away from the strict norms that govern Indian middle-class life. But she also begins to understand that mere dollars cannot buy the love and respect that she gets as her due in India… Gouramma realizes that she must forge a new relationship with Vinuta-but Vinuta has to first forgive and forget the past.
