Sales assistant, Sapna Sinha, is offered a chance to change her life. All she has to do is pass seven tests.
Sapna Sinha works as a sales assistant in a TV showroom in New Delhi. Being the only bread-winner in the family she works long hours to provide for her widowed mother and younger sister. But then a man walks into her life with an extraordinary proposition: pass seven “life” tests of his choosing and she will have wealth and power. At first the tests seem easy, but things are not quite as they seem.
