Anumati is the story of an old man’s attempts to save his dying wife. In the face of absolute money shortage, Ratnakar tries everything - borrowing from relatives, appealing to charity trusts and coaxing insurance companies. He tries to raise money trying to sell the very house that he had built with his wife. His trauma of facing life without his life partner is unbearable…

Madhu is on life support system(ventilator) in the hospital. Ratnakar, her sixty-five year old husband is a retired teacher. Shrikant is their son.

The hospital bills for Madhu's treatment have totaled to 4 to 5 lakh rupees. Rantakar has used up all his savings for the same. Their son, Shrikant is unwilling to spend any more money on his ailing mother.
He insists that his father sign on the DNR form that would permit the hospital to shut down all artificial life support systems.

Doctors at the hospital have hopes that Madhu's condition will improve if the treatment continues. Ratnakar does not give up hope and does not sign the DNR form. He cannot accept that a signature of his on some form has the right to ends his wife's life.

How could he give permission? He is willing to go to any ends and get monetary help for the treatment. He then embarks on a journey, a journey that takes him to different places and shows him various shades of life. He manages to gather some money that would grant Madhu life for a few days, but Destiny has some plans.
He meets his college friend 'Ambu' and she unknowingly shows him a new attitude to look at life. This leads him to take a decision about Madhu. He comes back to the hospital to find Madhu in a comatose but steady condition. He realizes he has done all he can and that still isn't enough.

His friend follows him to the hospital and deposits money in the hospital that would ensure Madhu's treatment for some time. She finds an exhausted Ratnakar resting on a bench outside the ICU with the DNR form in his hand.

She wants to assure him of her support in this difficult time. But Ratnakar has been relieved of all worries. He is no longer there to see her gesture. He has given up hope & his life in the bargain!

A heart wrenching story of the tussle between Destiny & human perseverance!
