Sarmad loves the simplicity of village life, but circumstances leave him consumed by a thirst for revenge. Nilofer strives for inner strength and independence, but struggles to let go of her past while Kashan, a self-proclaimed intellectual, turns to faith in the face of adversity. Falak Sher hungers for power and influence, and looks to plot his way to the top of the criminal world.
