A powerful and compelling family drama. Zarrie Bano is a glamorous 28-year-old daughter of a wealthy Muslim landowner. She falls in love with Sikander, a business tycoon, and plans to marry him. Her father, Habbib Khan, takes an instant irrational dislike to Sikander and vetoes the match. When his only son is killed in a freak riding accident, Habbib decides to make Zarrie Bano his heiress, resurrecting an ancient tradition which decrees that an heiress must remain celibate.
