A new servant arrives in a family which is suffering from internal tension. The new servant, whose identity is itself under suspicion, gradually becomes lovable to all of the family members including the old ailing family head. The story unravels how this new man in their life helps each of the family members to find out new meaning in their individual lives as well as find out the happiness of a close-knit family.

As the name is translated in English as "Truth seems like a fiction" the film introduces a character in the first half who is indescribably happy, fond of doing work and very much skillful at everything under the sun. He comes as a servant to the family of nearly 10 members when they are in critical need of someone like him. They have lost the peace in their life, getting angry over others over silliest reasons. Then this man appears like an angel. With his mastery at doing household work, intellectual ideas, and even cultural abilities he makes everyone happy and all the good things start happening magically.

In the end, when the whole family is happy and reunited, he leaves all of a sudden without notifying anyone. He remains a mystery till the end.
