Parenting is one heck of a task whose heady highs and mortifying lows have a profound influence on the lives of children. Parenting mistakes however minor need to be realized and rectified before they leave permanent scars. Zerafa, the first born to Omar and Zareefa is a special child whose specialty keeps her from normal schooling. Zerafa manifests her ability not through the use of words but colors, avant-garde. The coming of Zunaira, their second child, alleviates the suffering of the parents for she conforms to the normal in every possible way. She is schooled but soon Zerafas influence begins to tell. In order to save their normal child, the parents take a hard decision to separate the two; one of them is sent to a boarding school. While Zerafas talent is unleashed with time, Zunaira unable to come to terms with the separation withdraws into a shell. She rebels against her studies only to be mistaken by her mother as being pampered. The mother-daughter relationship soon turns sour. The story delves deep into a childs psyche to unveil parenting mistakes. Read on to know how the parents realize their mistakes and whether the scars get permanently sketched onto the psyche of the children. Or is there any mystery revolving through the plot that sets the fairy tale in motion and settles it on that score?
