A Canadian resident travels to Pakistan for her cousin's wedding and finds herself drawn to the bride's adopted brother, a kind man who works at a school for the underprivileged. Will her love be reciprocated?
Touching and telling, this insightful romantic drama revolves around Meena (Armeena Khan), a student living in Vancouver, Canada, who travels to Swat, Pakistan for her cousin Palwasha's (Hania Amir) wedding. Her Canadian friends began to worry that she might also be forced into marriage.
She is met at the airport by the bride's adopted brother, Asafandyar (Bilal Ashraf), and taken back to the house, where festivities are taking place at full swing. Upon arrival, Palwasha explains to Meena about her meeting and subsequent engagement with her fiancé Samir, a Punjabi. Daniyal (Ali Rehman Khan), Palwasha's brother, attempts to impress Meena with some ill-advised stunts, much to Meena's disapproval and derision. The groom's family also arrive for the wedding. Meena breaks a tooth and while having the tooth fixed becomes intoxicated by the painkillers from the dentist and slowly develops a feeling for Asfandyar after seeing his kind nature, at the school where he works – a school funded by wealthy beneficiary Ikramullah.
On the night of Palwasha's mehndi ceremony, Chotu (the driver) reveals to Asfandyar that he was abused by Ikramullah in his childhood and that Ikramullah is a child predator who has been abusing vulnerable children at the school. Upon Ikramullah's arrival at the ceremony, Asfandyar approaches him in anger and punches and slaps him, much to his family's chagrin. This leads to Daniyal's mother denouncing Asfandyar, claiming that his temperament is solely due to his being adopted.
Asfandyar is greatly upset by this but is consoled by Daniyal, who tells him he thinks of him as his real older brother. Before learning about Ikramullah's true nature, Meena slaps Asfandyar out of anger and afterward regrets this action.
Due to his family's disapproval of his earlier actions, Asfandyar refrains from telling the family of Ikramullah's child abuse and remains detached at the Nikkah ceremony. His father learns of what happened to Chotu and the younger students and decides to pursue a court case against Ikramullah with the help of the students' parents. Ikramullah threatens violence against the family is the charges are not dropped.
Meanwhile, Samir and Asfandyar help Daniyal plan a proposal for Meena, a proposal that she rejects. Later that evening, the car that Palwasha and Meena are driving is stopped by Ikramullah's men. Asfandyar, Daniyal, and Samir are also driving along this road and are injured in a struggle with Ikramullah's men.
On the day of the wedding, Meena receives a full-time job offer from a Canadian middle school, starting from a month after the wedding. After a talk with Daniyal, Asfandyar realizes his feelings for Meena and goes to her room to talk to her- there he finds the job offer and leaves, assuming she will leave after accepting the offer.
After the wedding, Ikramullah's men arrive and shoot Chotu, killing him. Asfandyar follows them and finds that they have set the school on fire, in retaliation for Ikramullah's arrest earlier that night. Daniyal and Meena arrive as Asfandyar runs into the flames.
A month later, Meena is seen teaching the children from the burnt school, which is seen being reconstructed. She and Daniyal then travel to a graveyard, where Asfandyar is visiting Chotu's grave, still blaming himself for his death. Asfandyar assumes Meena is planning to return to Canada, having accepted the job offer, but she tells him she wants to stay and help rebuild the school. She then proceeds to propose to Asfandyar while Daniyal films the proposal on his phone. The three then begin to head home.
