Ratna (Tillotama Shome), une jeune veuve, a quitté la campagne pour venir travailler comme domestique chez Ashwin (Vivek Gomber), un riche architecte de Bombay. Après un séjour de plusieurs années aux États-Unis, celui-ci s'apprête à se marier. Mais le mariage est annulé au dernier moment, car sa fiancée Sabina l'a trompé. Il se retrouve seul et plein d'incertitudes, entre travail sur les chantiers et retour solitaire dans son appartement. Ratna, qui habite à plein temps dans son appartement, dispose d'une petit coin de couloir en guise de chambre, où elle a installé un petit autel d'oraisons. Elle lui prépare ses repas, entretient le somptueux appartement moderne et fait preuve de discrétion et d'humilité en s'effaçant devant son employeur, issu d'une caste bien supérieure à elle. Ils s'effleurent, se frôlent, s'évitent dans les recoins de l'appartement, Ratna baissant le regard, Ashwin perdu dans sa mélancolie. Mais celui-ci contrairement à sa famille et ses amis qui ignorent, voire méprisent Ratna, est un homme respectueux. Ratna comprend et s'intéresse au désarroi sentimental d'Ashwin, qui s'ouvre peu à peu au dialogue avec elle. Leur relation va progressivement échapper au strict cadre du service.
