The story is set in rural Punjab, and is primarily centered around the desertion of brides by NRI grooms that is prevalent in various regions of Punjab.

Desho declares her intention of getting an NRI bridegroom for her daughter Bani. Soham, who lives in Bani's village, is smitten with her, but he is rejected by Desho since he is not an NRI. Amreek and Parmeet are NRI bachelors. Rajji's marriage is arranged with Amreek and Bani's with Parmeet. On the day of the double wedding, there is a great deal of confusion. First, it seems that Parmeet, who works in Canada, will not turn up for the wedding. So Desho begs Soham to marry Bani and he joyfully agrees. But Parmeet does turn up at the last moment. Then, Amreek leaves in a huff because of a misunderstanding between him and Rajji. Now, because of a communication gap, the brides' relatives get the impression that Soham has agreed to marry Rajji. Thus, Bani marries Parmeet, as planned, while Soham unknowingly marries Rajji instead of his true love.

Bani accompanies Parmeet to her in-laws' home. Parmeet leaves alone for Canada the next morning, promising to return soon. In the meantime, Sohum and his family members realize that the bride they have brought home is Rajji and not Bani. They are very upset, but Sohum's brother Angad suggest that they should give Rajji a chance. At first, Parmeet is quite regular in making phone calls to Bani. Then, it is revealed that Parmeet had only married Bani so that he could legally claim some ancestral property and sell it in order to make money. After getting what he wants, he stops calling Bani.

Eventually, Bani realizes that her husband has abandoned her, but she is determined to get her rights as a wife. She decides to search for him and bring him back. Soham offers to accompany her as an escort. But Rajji, who has been trying hard to make her marriage work, begs Bani not to take Sohum along. So, Bani refuses to let Sohum accompany her and sets out alone for Delhi, from where she plans to go to Canada. In Delhi, she falls into the trap of some criminals who want to use her in the flesh trade. But, luckily, she is rescued in time by a social worker, a lady named Anuradha, whose home becomes a refuge for Bani. Anuradha's daughter is about to marry an NRI named Meet. On the wedding day, Bani discovers that Meet is actually her husband Parmeet, who plans to marry Anuradha's daughter for money. Parmeet flees from the wedding when his truth is exposed. Anuradha said that they will arrest Parmeet but Bani disagrees. The reason was that Bani wanted to punish Parmeet. Bani went back to Parmeet but Parmeet throws Bani out of the House. Rajji gets pregnant and Sohum is taking care of Rajji, soon they are in love but can't say that to each other. When Bani's in-laws plans a picnic Parmeet plans to get Bani killed. They are having a picnic while Parmeet takes Bani to a boat, with the number 13 on it. Parmeet starts the motor and leaves Bani all alone in the boat. The boat moves and slowly sinks into the water. Bani is declared dead and the whole family is heartbroken. Rajji is depressed. However, soon after it is revealed that Bani is alive and is getting treatment in a hospital. She vows to make Parmeet pay. She meets Anuradha again who is later revealed to be Parmeet's real mother. However, Bani is unaware of this. Anuradha invites Bani to stay at her home and Bani tells her everything about Parmeet. Anuradha helps Bani in her plan unaware that Parmeet is her son. Rajji finds out Bani is indeed alive but Bani tells her everything about Parmeet was the cause of the boat incident. Rajji helps Bani and Anuradha.
