Synopsis: Ayesha is a seemingly well-adjusted middle-aged woman whose life centres around her son Saleem – a gentle, dreamy 18-year-old, in love with Zubeida. They live in the village of Charkhi, in Pakistani Punjab. The story begins in 1979, in a Pakistan under President General Zia-ul-Haq’s martial law. The country has embarked on the road to Islamisation. Saleem becomes intensely involved with a group of Islamic fundamentalists and leaves Zubeida. Ayesha is saddened to see her son change radically. Events escalate when Sikh pilgrims from India pour into the village. Later, a pilgrim looks for his sister Veero who was abducted in 1947. This awakens heart-rending memories.
