A saga that spans over two generations, Meri Zaat Zarra-E-Benishan begins with the arrival of a girl named Sara (Sarwat Gilani) at the doorstep of a man named Arfeen Abbas (Faisal Qureshi). She hands him a letter, and he seems shaken after reading it. He asks her where “Saba” is, and she replies that she died four days prior. Arfeen falls to the ground in shock, but then regains his composure and asks Sara to give him her address, so that they can go there and gather her belongings. When they arrive at Sara’s home, which is quite small compared to Arfeen’s mansion, she leaves Arfeen in the main room and heads to her bedroom to gather her belongings. Arfeen finds a pair of Saba’s old sandals, and breaks down in tears as he grips them. Sara sees him as he cries and wonders why he is so sorrowful at her death. They head back to Arfeen’s estate, where he introduces Sara to his son, Haider (Imran Abbas). Haider is not initially pleased to have Sara staying in their house, but becomes accustomed to her after a while.
