In her eight years of marriage, Henna loved her husband to death and tried her best to get adapted to his westernized and sophisticated lifestyle.
She is very happy when one day Hashim gives her air tickets to visit her family along with their children. She goes to her family which comprises of her parents, two brothers among whom one is married and has a daughter. After some days, Hashim tells his kids to return saying that he doesn’t want them to compromise their studies with school going on. Henna's happy world got shattered when she receives divorce papers, and she can't even go to the US as she doesn’t have a green card.
On the other hand, Hashim is shown to be having an extramarital affair with Kamla who is the wife of Nabeel, his best friend. Hashim and Kamla marry, but his children refuse to accept her as their mother. Henna desperately wants to meet her children. She meets Nabeel who offers her to take revenge from Hashim, but Henna denies. Meanwhile, children are facing lots of difficulties to stay with Kamla, and even Kamla starts feeling that it is better to send them to their mother, Henna. She makes a plan to send them but gets caught by Hashim who then divorces her. Meanwhile, Marina who is Adeel’s (Henna's younger brother) friend sets up Henna's marriage with her maternal uncle, Salman.
Henna firstly denies as she doesn’t want to get married the second time but when he promises her to take her to the US so that she can meet her children and get them, she marries him. Adeel starts liking Roma and decides to take Marina's help. Marina is in love with Adeel secretly but never confesses because of her inferiority complex as she is overweight. Eventually, Adeel realizes that he loves Marina and then proposes her. It is revealed that Salman is impotent which makes Henna feel betrayed as she didn’t know all this. She even calls him gay, but later she apologizes when Salman makes her realize that she is treating him like Hashim used to treat her. Henna goes to a doctor along with Salman. Marina successfully loses weight and surprises everyone on the day of her marriage with Adeel. Salman gives a job to Adeel in the US, and Henna is pregnant.
Salman is very happy but denies completing his promise,becoming somewhat selfish as he doesn’t want any trouble in Henna’s pregnancy and he thinks that she would neglect her health. Salman and Henna along with Adeel and Marina reach the US. Henna keeps on pleading to let her meet her kids but is denied every time and is promised by Salman that he would take her to meet her children as soon as the baby is born.
Marina decides to apply for her Masters in a university which Adeel opposes, but soon his decision gets changed by Henna. Henna gives birth to a girl who is named Zarlina, nicknamed as Zee. On the other hand, Hashim along with his children visit Pakistan for meeting Henna but learns about Henna's second marriage.

After Zee grows up, Henna shows her children’s photo to her.After seeing them even she wants her elder siblings. Adeel is saddened by Marina's job as he wants to have a baby. Henna unexpectedly meets Hashim and demands to meet her children and thus goes to his house along with him but is shocked to see the condition of her children.
Soni has become a spoilt drug addict whereas Naeel is always alone. She also learns that they hate her for not coming as Hashim had lied to them that it was Henna who was at fault. Henna decides to stay there to make everything correct but still continues to hate Hashim. Salman becomes furious after learning this and goes there with Zee, but Henna blames him for her children’s condition and starts hating him. Salman leaves Zee with her as he is very guilty.
Soni warns Henna to leave the house as she hates Zee and threatens that otherwise, she will create some trouble whereas Naeel likes Zee and plays with her. Zee is kidnapped by Soni who threatens Henna to leave the house which Henna readily accepts.This hurts Soni as she starts thinking Henna only loves Zee so she refuses to agree. Salman comes for meeting Zee and is left surprised by the set-up of Soni. Zee still loves Soni as her elder sister and is living at Soni's friend’s house.
Even though Soni is exploiting Zee but she is also taking care of her. One day, Soni's friend apologizes to Henna by calling her. Henna decides to leave Hashim's house along with Zee, but before going, she reveals to Soni that she doesn’t know the whole truth. Hashim finally reveals about whatever he has done to Soni. Henna decides that she will leave alone as Salman hadn’t kept his promise. Soni tells Henna to never leave Zee alone.
Meanwhile, Marina thinks to leave Adeel as she assumes him to be a male chauvinist but later gets confronted by Salman who tells her that she is the main problem, the one who is difficult to live with and she should never leave Adeel as his love for her is true. Marina finally apologizes to Adeel for her extra headstrong behavior.
Then they lead a happy life together and even start planning for children. Naeel and Soni refuse to be with Hashim and choose to stay with Henna and continue to meet Zee frequently.
