Despite her image of being a liberated young woman in the late 1980s, Afia Rana is aware that at the slightest provocation her orthodox parents will force her to give up her job and marry a man of their choice. When this happens, it is too late. She has already found the man of her choice.
Vulnerable in her innocence and powerlessness to resist the suave Dhruv Tandon, Afia becomes pregnant with his child.
Drowning in a sea of disillusionment and daunted by the prospect of motherhood in a culture that decries single mothers, all Afia has to offer her child is her love, which she hopes will be…
Enduring enough to protect him from a self-righteous society fraught with double standards.
Astute enough to help him cope with the hard fact that his father is married to a woman who is not his mother.
Strong enough to break the fetters that bind her and her son to Tandon.
