Reth is an unusual love story of a young woman Jia, the daughter-in-law of the family.

Despite this, Jia has still managed to put up with his family and uphold the family values. An incident turns her life upside down. Her sister-in-law becomes the target of some rapists. In order to save her sister-in-law, she faces those monsters and becomes their target. Her family is grateful for her sacrifice but is unable to give her the strong support that she needs and craves for. Reth throws light on a woman’s unending fight against the stigma to emerge strong and face an unfavorable society. Serials like these, based on sheer courage and determination are expected to be made and appreciated instead of the same typical family dramas.
