Summary Set in the 19th century, Uma is a young girl from a Brahmin family who is an orphan living with her uncle. She is mute and has a horoscope that predicts her husband's untimely death. In short, she can't be married off. In order to overcome the stigma of an unmarried girl in the family, she is married to a tree. Uma is mistreated by all. She is seduced by the village schoolteacher and becomes pregnant, leading to greater humiliation. Throughout it all, the tree becomes her companion and a bond develops between the two mute creatures. Ultimately, it is the tree that gives Uma dignity in her death.
