In Lahore, Haider and his wife live with his brother’s entire family. In this house where everyone lives under the gaze of the others, Haider is urged to find a job and become a father. The day he lands a job in a cabaret, he falls under the spell of Biba, a sensual and magnetic dancer. As his feelings begin to grow, Haider finds himself torn between the pressure of his job and the irresistible call of freedom.
