Nataraj and his close friends, a poet, and a journalist, find their congenial days disturbed when Vasu, a powerful taxidermist, moves in with his stuffed hyenas and pythons and brings his dancing-women up the printer’s private stairs. When Vasu, in search of a larger game, threatens the life of a temple elephant that Natara j has befriended, complications ensue that is both laughable and tragic.
