What would you do if family, the people you trusted most, betrayed you?
Sheetal Prasad, a glamorous, twenty-two-year-old oil painter, is the envy of Raigun, India. Her homeland, now modern and global, at last allows women to marry for love, and Sheetal is determined to wed her college sweetheart. Her parents, however, insist she fulfill her familial duty, preserve their honor, and marry millionaire Rakesh Dhanraj-or be cast out forever.
The alliance of the Prasad and Dhanraj families drowns Sheetal in a web of lies, deceit, and betrayal. In her plan to sever this marriage and escape, Sheetal uncovers numerous devastating secrets that threaten to bring down the two family dynasties. When the Dhanraj's tyranny threatens her son, Sheetal has no choice but to protect the boy at all costs, burning down the façade of her abusive marriage and empowering herself to break free of all bondages.
