Albert hosts a party to his coterie of friends on the eve of getting a promotion and increment in the salary. Three of his friends (Michael, Peter, and Robinson) attend the party in the evening and fill the aura of his house with excitement and joy. An old man standing outside the house signals Albert to come out for once, but he ignores and slams the door in front of him. Blessed with mystic powers, he moves to the backyard of that house and stations there.

 Till half an hour, all four rock the floor with dancing, singing, and boozing and then comfort on the sofa to rest for a while.

Suddenly, the lights go down and an eerie silence prevails over there. When Albert motions into the kitchen to get the matchbox, he stumbles over a body and falls. The body is none other than one of his friends, Michael. Astounded to see him dead, he takes the matchbox and races to the drawing-room to know the status quo of his other friends. On lighting the candle, he sees Peter’s head twisted and Robinson hung from the ceiling fan.

Someone rapping at the door from inside turns Albert’s attention to the washroom. But when he unbolts the door and steps inside finds none.  

To his shock, the mirror inside the washroom cracks and blood splatters over its surface. His attempts to rescue from that place fail miserably because the evil force encircles the house with the giant-sized dark-colored snake.   

The inner portion of the house gradually drowns in a deluge of water, and as the minutes' tick by, the chances of his survival plummet.

A palpable sense of fear smites Albert, and he yells for help.

The mystic man with his sixth sense feels the pain of Albert and rushes over there to his rescue. The snake with its protruded tongue attacks him but he stands firm and prays lord with closed eyes.

In course of time, the dangerous creature dies, and the man intrudes through the water inside to bring Albert out of that hell.

 Both step out of the house all in one piece.

The old man takes out the ax and falls the thorn tree (in proximity to the house) , bastion of the witch and the tree of evil omen.

The tree turns into black color and the witch in the form of smoke vanishes into the sky.   

Albert conveys his regards to his well-wisher and seeks a blessing from him. 

The normalcy restores and gives a new lease of life to Albert.
