Clients smoke imported cigarettes and reveal sexual conquests, while the lower class women working there face a more open struggle with honour and prosperity. Chance and wilfulness propel Rafina’s rise as a runway and billboard model. As Rafina climbs the social ladder, she is caught between two men with very different visions of Pakistan and the role of women.
