PlotEdit

A truck driver falls in love with the daughter of a restaurant worker on a highway. As the small hotel runs well because of her youth and beauty, the cruel father does not want his daughter to marry and go away. One of his crooked friends convinces him to get rid of the truck driver. The friend compromises the brake linings of the truck, which falls down several hundred feet on the narrow windy and hilly highway resulting in the driver's death. The girl tries to commit suicide. However, she is saved by a young owner of a fuel station across from the hotel. He has been secretly in love with her over the years. He offers to marry her, giving his name to the child to be born. They move to a big city, Kathmandu, and raise the girl child. The second chapter of their lives after the daughter is born is a complete turnaround with unexpected twists in the plot.
