The story of a man named Prakashan who yearns to go to foreign countries and who finds his name not very modern so changes his name to P. R. Akash just to sound cool.Though qualified as a B.Sc. Nursing Graduate nurse, he vehemently opposes the idea of entering the nursing profession because of its lower pay and thankless nature and believing it is suited to women rather than men. He actively tries to go abroad through spouse visa.
Though, despising nursing career, he meets a former nurse girlfriend Salomi who is on the verge of migrating to Germany to for higher wages. He digresses from his original plan to start fresh, and tries to re-ignite his unfulfilled love with Salomi, learns German and foresees Germany as his final destination.
However, he confides in his local guardian Gopalji, a former student of his father, that the pseudo affection showered on Salomi is just to obtain a visa in conjecture to the existing emigration rules. Paradoxically, Salomi cheats Prakashan along with her family and manages to use him for money to get to Germany. Knowing that she married a German shocks Prakashan and leaves that scheme then and there.
He works for Gopalji to repay his debt, and later resorts to a related profession of a home nurse. He takes up the job with Teena Mol who has a malignant brain tumor, he is deeply moved by his friendship with Teena Mol. He also develops a friendship with Shruthi, a girl living in the neighborhood.
The film ends by Prakashan transforming himself into a realistic and grounded human being, a sensitive nursing professional where he realizes that nursing is more than just a way of income, but rather, a way to help people in need.
