Chand (Preity Zinta), a vibrant young woman, arrives in Canada from India to marry a man (Vansh Bhardwaj) she has never met. The minute she gets off the plane in Toronto to meet her new husband, Rocky, her life turns into a nightmare. Rocky's coldness and horrific temper may be the primary causes of Chand's unhappiness, but he has numerous—albeit often passive—accomplices, most importantly his domineering mother.

Desperate and unable to contact her family, Chand turns to a fellow factory worker, Rosa, who gives her a magical potion that will make whoever drinks it fall in love with Chand immediately.
