Couple by Sabita Dangol

A couple face temptations and revelations in the process of renewing their wedding vows.

As the couple prepares for the ceremony, an incident from the past threatens to spoil the celebration. Two younger couples – one announcing their engagement, the other breaking up – offer new perspectives on love and commitment in the face of forces that would tear them apart.
