In a remote village in the mountains of Pakistan, a young mother’s worst fear comes true. The 10-year-old daughter of Allah Rakhi has been promised to an old tribal leader to settle a blood feud. Determined to protect her child, Allah Rakhi decides to escape with her daughter on the morning of the wedding and they set off on a journey into the unknown, well aware that her husband’s family and the tribal leader’s henchmen would aggressively pursue them. While on the run, Allah Rakhi convinces a reluctant Sohail, an ex-Mujahid truck driver, to take them on-board. Unwittingly, he is placed in danger as anyone discovered helping these runaways will share their fate. The relentless chase intensifies and they make their uncertain escape towards the distant city of Lahore.
