Synopsis

Sanjita had a horrid childhood. She has been a child server working for Kathmandu’s petty bourgeoisie where she was exploited in magnitudes. Her struggles in life have made her believe in the art of manipulation.

Her new interest is the young son of her ex owner soon to become her new groom. As Sanjita walks into her new house – now as the daughter in law, a server in the house is yet another maid – she also lives in bonded like conditions.
