During the war for the independence of Bangladesh from Pakistan in 1971, Meher falls in love with a soldier from the enemy side. When her love is discovered, she is shamed by her family and society. Today, 38 years after the war, Meher receives the visit of her niece Sarah, a ‘war-child’, who was given up for adoption.
