Thiru Kumaran, a peon, wants to make his son an auditor because his employer, an arrogant auditor, insults him. As time passes by, his son, Shiva Kumar disappoints him by not being a bright student at college. Thiru’s wife Janaki too is upset over the same. He loses his cool when Shiva is terminated from college for indulging in a malpractice. An infuriated son vents out his frustration to his father and challenges him to join college and earn a degree. How Thiru takes up the challenge forms the rest of the story.
