A frightened Chinkara (deer) cries for help in the deep recesses of a cold winter night in the desert. A villager Shaitan Singh Bishnoi rushes out to rescue the Chinkara but is shot dead by hunters. He is survived by his wife Pushpa and a 2-year-old son Piyush. Pushpa adopts a baby Chinkara as he has lost his mother and names him Kishan. The film revolves around Kishan and Pushpa.
