Janbarar makes a living selling charcoals. When his wife spends her final months of pregnancy, Naneh Khatoun (the midwife of the village) suggests he should take her to the city. He borrows his uncle's, Babgholi, horse and takes her to the city. After they arrive in the city, an Indian doctor tells Janbarar that his wife should have a caesarean delivery as soon as possible. Janbarar tells the doctor that he can’t afford that so the doctor decides not to charge anything, but he still needs some money to pay the infirmary, so he sells the horse he had borrowed and figures he can give back his uncle his own cow instead, not knowing that the cow was eaten by a bear in the jungle that morning. His life gets turned upside down and after he refuses to be a wood smuggler, he leaves his homeland to become a road keeper.
