Overview

Aisha is a young girl forcefully married to a wealthy forty-year-old man.
The poverty in her family is heightened by the drought in her country. Daily, she visits her mother's dry farmland, praying for rain to fall and moisten the soil. She knows all hope is lost.

Having sustained her family for as long as he could, after her father's sudden disappearance, her uncle decides the marriage is their last resort. She must marry her old suitor, or bear the responsibility should her mother and younger ones perish in poverty.

Aisha weighs her options and decides to marry, with a hidden agenda that might ruin her younger sister in the long haul.
