The land where KHAP rules, a marriage is not made in heaven. Here, nothing matters, not even true love. What matters is the age old custom that no one has ever dared to challenge. KHAP is a tale of two different worlds colliding each other over a love story which we take as a norm in our world. Till then, in the world of KHAP, a marriage is only sanctioned if it satisfies age old customs. If someone defies their diktat, an unofficial illegal death sentence is passed and executed in the most gruesome manner. But when the guardians of the old faith do it to lovers from Delhi, they challenge their supremacy in a way, no one ever dared to do. Is their marriage made in heaven?
