A poor Indian mother, Radha, undergoes lots of hardships, including losing her husband and paying most of her income to a money lender. In one scene she is protecting her boys from a flood, holding the bamboo platform they are sitting on on her shoulders so they do not drown, when a snake swims up to her trying to get to dry ground. She splashes it away but it returns so she does it again. When it starts to climb up next to one of her boys, he grabs it and throws it back into the water.
Later, when the boys are grown, we see a snake drop onto the water jar on top of a young woman's head. One of the boys sees it and grabs it off the jar.
