The plot thickens when the innocent girl turns out to be Rukhsana's daughter who has been Maya's loyal maid and the primary caretaker of her household while she's away at work. The two are at a crossroads when Rukhsana tries to find out the truth behind her daughter's accident but is stripped of her basic dignity by the system and Maya tries to cover her tracks by putting on a brave face for as long as she can and suppress the story as she gets more anxious by the day. The center of this gripping story revolves around the layers of truth about our society that the movie unveils as we move forward and the power of womanhood.
