Young Bibicha suddenly refuses to speak and conceals herself from villagers in the house of her grandmother Khanjarmomo. Khanjarmomo lives with her illegally born granddaughter Sharifa. The two of them support Bibicha in her vow of 40 days of silence, which she carries out in hopes of being rejoined by her recently disappeared lover. Yet Khanjarmomo doubts the girl's motives, as she is uncertain if the vow is really for the sake of her beloved or if she is trying to hide an illicit pregnancy.
