Plot

The TV series details the life of a young woman (Zoya) who is trying to resolve tensions between her father (Asfand) who runs a restaurant in city of Karachi called Alfonso, and mother (Maya) an artist residing in Florida. With the help of friends, she takes on the task of saving her family restaurant from going into ruins, and her family from breaking into pieces. The seamless, simple story of genuine human emotions of belonging, compassion, and love has deeper undercurrents that flow throughout the story, shedding light on various social realities pertaining to the South Asian region: identity politics, patriotism and the evolution of a hybrid culture of modernity and traditionalism. It is not the story of landlords and big business tycoons, nor does it focus on glamorous lifestyles; it is an everyday tale of ordinary people tackling ordinary issues. The kahani revolves around the lives and dreams of characters from diverse socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds – reflecting the multicultural metro that is Karachi.
