In Lahore, Haider shares a traditional home with his wife, father and his brother’s family. He has been unemployed for two years, but when he is pressured to find work, he is set up with a job as a backing dancer at an erotic theatre. Without any training or talent, he is taken under the wing of Biba, a trans dancer to whom he finds himself attracted. But as he lies about his new life to his family, it is only a matter of time before they find out about his career and relationship. A sensitive, funny, but sometimes sad drama with some fabulous Bollywood dance routines.
