Aby Abraham(Mohanlal) is a young man taking care of a bunch of orphan kids, leading a nomadic life. His relationship with the children often resembles that of the good shepherd and his sheep. Aby along with the children, rely on street magic performances as their means to survive. In one of their stays, they come across a father (Thilakan) to whom Aby confesses their story. Aby was kidnapped from his home as a young boy by a street performer who used to abuse him a lot. One night, Aby runs away from the man and is rescued by a rich and affluent Thomas Abraham (M. G. Soman) who becomes Aby's adoptive father.Thomas's sudden death again leaves Aby homeless and orphaned after Thomas's estranged wife (Valsala Menon) and brothers return to reclaim Thomas's wealth and kicks him out of the home. During this time Aby wanders in the streets with the little amount he has and comes across several street children who are abused or left orphaned. He empathizes with them and since then decides to protect and love them. After hearing his story, the father offers help to Aby and advices him to send the children to school so that they gain education enabling them to come out of homelessness and poverty. With financial aid from the father, Aby sets up a farm and settles down in order to back up the associated expenses. A close relative of Ouseppachan, (Innocent (actor)) Annie Mol (Karthika) who lost her parents in a plane crash, enters their life and falls in love with Aby. For his father's death anniversary, Aby returns to town only to find that he is a terminal heart patient. Determined to spend the last days of his life with the children and Annie, Aby flees from the hospital. Aby feels a responsibility towards the future of the children and sends them to the father's orphanage (an idea which he initially disagreed to) telling them that he's going on a long journey. Annie gets to know about Aby's illness and is devastated. Later the night Aby gets a vision of the children running up to him calling out his name. The next morning, father, Annie and the children come to visit Aby only to find eternal rest granted onto him.
