Jubilation descends into trauma, when Akram’s long awaited engagement ceremony is darkened by the murder of her father by a member of the groom’s family. The film whisks us to the pivotal day of the murderer’s execution sentence, but the secret of Akram’s pregnancy threatens to unravel the process. All whilst two choices embed the minds of the family – revenge or forgiveness?
