While Harry is Hindu and Aayet is Muslim, it's love at first sight for both of them, and they hope to spend their lives together. However, Harry is called away to join the Air Force and Aayet and her family must once again move on, forcing them to separate. Several years later, Harry is on an assignment with the RAF in Scotland when to his surprise he crosses paths with Aayet, who is helping her family run an antique shop.
