Storyline

A domineering traditionalist British Pakistani mother, Naila, is constantly conflicted in her need to please the extended family, ignoring the needs of her family and sets unrealistic goals for her children to do her proud. After losing hope with her disobedient son Adam, Naila sets her vulnerable daughter Amara a huge challenge without compromise. Amara must pass her university exams with a First-class honour and become a doctor to qualify for the best marriage proposals as there is strong competition from her cousins. Amara is clearly warned by her mother, that if she fails to meet her expectations, then she will face the ultimate downfall of marrying her village born cousin in Pakistan. However, destiny holds an unexpected plan for Amara; a week before Amara's final exams she gets kidnapped, confused for a politician's daughter. Written by Suman Hanif
