After the wicked Count Lahab promises to crush the young princess Mariam at her aqiqah; she is hidden within the king's castle.

Many peaceful years pass; but; upon news of Mariam's wedding; they come to a piercing end. Count Lahab finds a way to deceive the castle and present her with a beautiful hijab pin; covered in poison; that leaves her in a deep; unbreakable sleep.

After potions and prayers have no effect her husband; Haris; is told to go on a perilous journey to Makkah to pray for her recovery and bring back zam zam water for her to drink. But; faced by Count Lahab and his outlaws; what does his destiny hold?
