'Invisible Ties'

As Karachi burned in the 1990s, the painfully shy Noor Kamal found refuge in an antique jade mirror she stole from Daisy Kamal, her social butterfly mother. One fateful day, the violence hits home as a motley crew of burglars storm the Kamal residence, killing Joseph, the faithful driver who tried to shield Noor, and kidnapping Daisy.

Traumatised by the turn of events and succumbing to familial pressure, Noor reluctantly agrees to start life afresh in Singapore as the wife of Meekaal Kalim, an investment banker.Trapped in a loveless marriage, she secretly enrols herself in a course in Psychotherapy. Her attempt to heal others brings her close to Ella, her neighbour, and Jake, a handsome American who is struggling to deal with his emotional breakdown.

As she tries to exorcise ghosts from the past and break free from the shackles, where will this quest take Noor?
