What would you do if your life was a web of lies?
Thirty-two-year-old celebrity, Sheetal Dhanraj, is married to millionaire Rakesh Dhanraj and mother to their eight-year-old son. The women of Raigun, India, envy Sheetal’s good fortune and ability to balance career, marriage, motherhood and uphold Indian values to perfection.
However, behind the closed doors of the marble Dhanraj palace Sheetal yearns for love but is trapped in an abusive and unfaithful marriage. A pawn in the Dhanraj’s web of deceit, Sheetal denies the silent suffering like a good Indian wife because her reputation is tied to her husband’s. Then a chance-meeting with her former college sweetheart shatters Sheetal’s world and her faith. Her marriage overturns. Her son’s life is in jeopardy. In a race against time, Sheetal and her son must escape the Dhanraj’s tyranny or forever be imprisoned in games of fate and death.
