The story intricately weaves the lives of several characters, including a female forensic scientist fighting against gender barriers, an American woman navigating her new life in a restrictive environment, and a devout Muslim detective torn between his duty and his faith. As they work together to solve the murder, they uncover a web of secrets and lies that challenge their beliefs and threaten to disrupt the delicate balance of their community.
