A well educated and honest young man is employed as a low-level clerk for the city of Bombay. Corruption is rife among most city officials, but the young clerk is just too honest to get involved in unscrupulous behavior. The result is that his superiors want to get rid of him for not playing along with their shady behavior. The corrupt bureaucrats put a plan in motion to force him out, and even go after his brother with a trumped-up legal charge. The young clerk must find a way to clear his brother while salvaging his own career.
