Synopsis

An attractive prostitute is called for a client who is a young, married politician. Soon night of romance between the arrogant politician and the prostitute turns into a violent rape. Beaten and humiliated, she decides to sue the politician.

Next day, the scandal hits the media. Young politician, also a member of the Cabinet, claims it to be a plot set up by his rivals to defame his reputation and hurt his successful political career. The unfolding scandal becomes the centre of attention for the media and the public as well. Tension rises as the wife starts raising doubts about her husband's innocence.

Mean while the prostitute tries to protect herself and her adopted blind child from the story-seeking reporters and intruders. Life becomes even harder for her when her father decides to visit amidst dramatic atmosphere.

Doubting wife calls the unsuspecting prostitute as a client to her mountain home. She intends to get the real story behind this scandal. After a stormy first meeting, two women develop a warm, understanding relationship where they are drawn closer to each other to realize similarities, and yet differences in their lives.

Just as this emotional relationship grows irresistible for both women, the news of minister's acquittal of all legal charges drifts TWO WOMEN into a dilemma.
