Powerful contemporary drama. A young woman falls in love with the wrong man, with tragic consequences for everyone.

Every parent wants the best for their kids, and Shahzad is no exception. Ever since his wife died he's been trying to keep his two kids Salma and Hassan on track. Salma is growing up quickly, and Shahzad wants to make sure she's set up with the right guy to settle down with. It's a promise he made his wife, and part of what he considers his duty as a dad.

But what does Salma want?

Unbeknown to Shahzad, she's caught up in a whirlwind romance with charismatic charmer Imi. Salma knows Imi is not what her dad is expecting, but can she find a way to make everyone happy?

A hard-hitting drama with a devastating finale, this is a story about the power and the limits of love in communities where 'honour' means everything.
