    • Synopsis
    • Once upon a time, 'Senehi', a woman who loathes her stepdaughter 'Tejimola', plots her murder when her husband is called away on a distant trip on business. Her husband – 'Devinath'- encounters a woman called 'Keteki' who has given birth to an outenga (elephant apple), which rolls around after her. Devinath resolves to unearth the mystery of the outenga. Meanwhile, in another village - a rich woman named 'Dhoneshwari' is getting her daughter 'Bonlotika' married to a python - a wedding that has dire consequences for the girl. As these three stories unfold, another mother - 'Malati' - resolves to save her newest born from the clutches of her husband 'Poonai' and his uncle, who have sacrificed all three of her previous babies. In doing so, she unearths a shocking truth.
