She offers to become a surrogate mother for an IT couple in return for money to enroll her child to a special school. Rabdi deals with motherhood, love, aspirations and priorities individuals make in their lives, touching upon major societal issues, solutions and trading of human emotions for personal benefits. Will Saavantri be able to give up ‘her’ second child or does her motherly love come in the way….?
