What’s in the trailer?

The series follows the poignant journey of a 76-year-old reclusive man who invites his estranged children and grandchildren to his remote valley resort to celebrate an extraordinary and unconventional event — his wedding with the ghost of his first true love. “This emotionally profound narrative makes viewers think about life’s mysteries, what happens after death, and the deep feeling of love that ties us together,” read its official synopsis.

The trailer shows Fawad driving up the hills to a place mysteriously called ‘Land of Nowhere.’ Fawad then encounters Sanam at the property and asks her, “So you’re still running the circus around here?,” as if he knows her from the past. She replies, “Who else will?” The rest of the trailer is filled with hints at supernatural events as the wedding approaches. 

When a kid asks Fawad why no one is stopping his grandfather from getting married to a ghost, Fawad says it’s because of ‘fear.’ While Fawad feels that his father is making the wrong choice by believing that he’d marry a ghost, Sanam dubs it as the power of love and convinces Fawad to be happy for his father.
