Aijaz is an aspiring poet who works in a factory to support his mother Nafeesa and sister Lubna who has a problem with one of her legs. Aijaz’s father had run away many years ago. Nafeesa asks Aijaz to find a match for Lubna. Aijaz brings home Amjad who had studied with Lubna in school. Amjad reveals that he is already engaged to another girl and leaves. Aijaz says he wants to join the merchant navy. Nafeesa is disillusioned by now. Lubna has been preserving glass dolls since her childhood. At some point, her favourite glass doll is disfigured by Amjad. Aijaz leaves home after this incident and arrives back in town after many years laden with guilt towards his mother and sister.
