While fighting to keep her husband’s legacy, Amba goes into labour. It is announced to the village that she has given birth to a boy.
The family matriarch promises to kill the child if it turns out to be a girl. Faced with two insurmountable threats, Amba, after giving birth to a girl, lies about the gender of her child.
She announces that she has given birth to a boy. Lying about a child’s gender is one thing, the challenge of keeping this lie up on a daily basis is quite another.

Amba stands before the village council to plead for her daughter to have access to further education. Jagan tries to get Mannu kidnapped.
After a close call, Amba has to remind Mannu that she cannot go to the school bathroom, for fear that she will be discovered for being a girl. Deena challenges Amba and whoever wins the challenge gets full control of Mannu.
