Aisha, who has been left without parents, lives with her grandmother. Grandma Habiba is 70 years old and does the best for her granddaughter. Though, she's afraid of her age because she worries of the future of her granddaughter. Therefore, she decides to give her granddaughter to another childless family. Different families without children start coming to Habiba's house. 
Aisha has always been excited about the box/chest that is in her house; the content of the chest seems mysterious to her. Assuming that the chest was for her dowry, she tried to look into it. One day, Aisha heard a conversation between her grandma and their neighbor and realized that the box is meant for her grandma's funeral.
