Raju’, a mother-less child, is orphaned by his father, as he is blinded while editing a video that he has made in a local photo studio. He is admitted to a residential blind orphanage run by a depraved man ‘Narayana’, who battens on the money meant for the welfare of the blind and keeps the children in deplorable conditions. As visually impaired boy, he learns to see life as a challenge. In the process of coping with the fresh blindness, Raju finds four friends Mynah, Sukumar, Bhaskar and Anand among the children of the centre. All the children, decide to send a complaint to the District Collector with the help of Raju. Unfortunately the whole effort goes in vain. This humiliation and pain strengthens the resolve of the children to expose Narayana’s delinquency. The mission "Divya-Drushti" starts with Raju’s astounding idea of portraying the brutality of Narayana with all evidences and proofs to the District Collector and makes an identity and creates independence not only to him but also to others.
