Jun (17), whose widowed mother works as a maid, decides to quit school and join the boat service as a driver. It separates him from his love, who belongs to an upper-caste and upper-middle-class family. When Monikanta’s (60) financial dependence on his much-younger wife causes unhappiness in the family, he crosses the river looking for livelihood, only to discover his wife with another man. The daughter, who witnesses this, seeks solace in her boyfriend. Majoni (16), preparing for her 10th exam, is tutored by Pradeep, a man in his late 20s. Pradeep makes use of her and Majoni thinks it is love. When Pradeep stops coming, Majoni sets out to know his actual intention. All three protagonists face desolation, but slowly resume their lives, like a boat floating through the ripples.
