The film is based on the journey of Zenith Irfan, a girl in her 20th year who became the first Pakistani female to complete a journey throughout the northern regions of Pakistan on a solo motorcycle.

The film is being written and directed by Adnan Sarwar and is looking forward for a 4th quarter release window in 2017.
