‘Kehkashan’ or Kuku as she is affectionately known by her family. Kuku belongs to a very conservative but affluent family and has lived in Pakistan all her life. She has been brought up to believe that ‘parents always know best’ when it comes to important decisions in life. Although an activeand outspoken debater, Kuku has no say at all at home and always has to bow her head in respect of her parents’ decisions.
Among the decisions that her parents have made for her is her childhood engagement to her cousin Ahmer. APakistani immigrant in Spain, Ahmer is dry and difficult, a stark contrast form the happy-go-lucky Kuku. Soon Kuku and Ahmer are married and she goes to live in Spain with him.
However, sadly it’s not a case of ‘happily ever after’ for Kuku. As she begins her newSpain, she notices Ahmer’s attitude towards her is far from acceptable. Ahmer is often ‘short’ with her, rarely has time for her as he’s too wrapped up in his and almost always tries to deliberately hurt her. She also finds his personality very different from her own and finds it hard to ‘connect’ with him.
Kuku’s only consolation is her brother-in-law Ammar, who treats her like a friend and always tries to cheer her up.
Ammar meanwhile is in love with SpanishEmilia, and although devoted to her, knows he may never be able to marry her because of his conservative family.
