During Asma’s wedding night, her brother Jamal and her ex-lover’s brother get into a fight. Jamal kills the guy unintentionally and leaves the scene. Scared and panicked, he hides in his friend’s place. In order to show the killing as a self-defense, Jamal’s brother cuts him but he tells the truth at the court and is sentenced to death. There is no way out of it except for one option: Asma must get a divorce and marry her ex-lover. But this is not the end of the story since Asma is pregnant.
