Unable to reconcile himself with the mysterious demise of his father, a twenty-year-old A-level student, Ali can only find peace amidst chaos and reckless adventures. In a city like Karachi there is no dearth of danger, but driving around Saddar at night entails more than he might have bargained for.

In the most improbable turn of events, he finds himself helping a young prostitute Meena and her four-year-old sister escape from a fate far worse than death. 

However, Meena’s struggle is far from over because she knows that her past can never be forgotten. The demon from her past is still hunting her; she has brought her past with her to a respected and happy home, not found a better life for her sister.

Frustrated by the rigidity of a conservative and ignorant society, Ali and Meena must finally face their greatest fears if they are to preserve even a sliver of sanity. Should their resolve falter, the status quo will engulf them!

Farees Ahmed

Slightly wayward and mostly eccentric Farees is a part-time existentialist but most of the time user of philosophical concepts she has no idea about. She enjoys talking about herself in third person, and talking about herself in general. When she is not drinking chai tea, she is debating with a Socratic irony, and/or cracking bad jokes. People think she is funny (none of them have expressed this thought out loud)
