Synopsis

Custody by Manju Kapur

When Shagun leaves Raman for another man, a bitter legal battle ensues. The custody of their two young children is thrown into question and Shagun must decide what price she will pay for the freedom to live with the man that she loves.

Raman finds new happiness with a friend of the family, Ishita, who already has a failed marriage behind her. But when the courts threaten the security of the new family she has made for herself with Raman, she decides to fight for it – whatever the cost to the children.
