She returns to Afghanistan pregnant, where she learns that William, the medical sciences student who performed her insemination switched the donor’s semen to his own. Distraught Janan now faces an inevitable conflict as she learns of William’s family history and connection to the wars in her homeland. Following the death of his wife, Professor Rahul has taken to drinking and causing trouble, landing him a prison sentence. His concerned family buy him a taxi to bide his time, resulting in his encounter with pregnant Janan. Seeking help from him, Rahul finds purpose and solace.
