In 1971, during Bangladesh's war of independence, Meher falls in love with a soldier from the enemy side. When her love is discovered, she is shamed and silenced by her family and society. Today 38 years after the war, Meher has a visitor she cannot turn down. Sarah - war-child, Meher's cousin Neela's daughter, who was given away for adoption has come back to piece together her past.
