Based on true events, Gurri has lived a sheltered and simple life. After losing her parents at an early age she relinquishes her desires for independence and a teaching career to submit to her dead mother’s wish of marriage to a ‘prince charming’.
When Gurri meets Bikram she believes everything her mother wanted for her will now come to pass, however her world is turned upside down when following a traditional marriage ceremony and wedding night Bikram and her dowry disappears without a trace.
Faced with judgment and disappointment from her Aunt and Uncle and with the embarrassment of an entire village on her shoulders Gurri must make a choice that could cost her everything she has ever known.
