According to the show's synopsis, "In an attempt to escape the haunting memories of her uptight husband, Sameer, Sophia embarks on a solitary mission. During her quest, she crosses paths with a young businessman, Umer, who, like her, is trying to escape an overly conscientious fiancée, Sara."
The plot further elaborates, "However, their unexpected yet not entirely unwelcome connection takes a hit when Sophia's mother-in-law, Neelum Malik, unexpectedly reenters the scene after years of estrangement. She claims it's to finally meet her son's chosen spouse. While Sophia's middle-aged neighbor TS successfully diverts much of Neelum Malik's attention with his romantic gestures, Neelum persists in her efforts to reconcile her son and daughter-in-law. Life becomes a challenge for Sophia as she must now choose between a new, compatible partner and a mother-in-law determined to mend their relationship."
The story continually unveils a series of events that delve into the profound yet humorous dynamics of relationships, complexities, and the transformation of bonds in the most unexpected manner in this dramedy.
