Orkkuka Vallappozhum, directed by debutante Sohanlal (the maker of many notable tele-films) tells the story of seventy-year old Sethumadhavan, who undertakes a journey to a hill-station. There he stays in an old bungalow, which for him is much more than a mere building. The bungalow is for him symbolic of his past, his childhood, adolescence and years of growing up. At the bungalow his mind travels down memory lane and he is taken to his early years, when he lived at the hill-station, the son of a teacher in a British School.
