The traditional social structure where a woman was the homemaker is being rapidly transformed into a new one as more and more educated women are stepping out of their homes to pursue careers, but there is no change in the role and responsibility of women when it comes to looking after the household.
Our society values only those roles which earn cash or cash equivalents whereas the efforts of women in creating and maintaining families are invisible.
An MBA from IIM Ahmedabad, Suman dreams of a top position in her company. But marriage to Kunal and the birth of her daughter change her life goals. In her quest to be a perfect mother, wife, and homemaker she quits her job, and somewhere along the way, she neglects herself Kunal moves into the arms of his secretary, Tara. Does Suman accept the situation tamely? What happens to her decision to go away and build a new life with her old friend, Rajan?
In this story, women are made to realize that the power to create change lies within them.
