The story is based on the life of an adopted girl named Rudra, who is searching for love from her stepmother and other family members. Rudra knows that she is adopted. She is very close to her father but not to other family members. She is aware of her limitations and keeping that in mind she takes care of her family members. She does not take it to heart when family members yell at her or curse her.

In reality she is the heiress of the family as she is her stepfather's older brother's daughter and Nanny is her real mother. However, Nanny hides this truth as her marriage with Rudra's real father was hidden from the family because she was poor.
