For years, parents made sacrifices to raise their children. And those children usually became good, grateful kids. But that has changed in today's society, where parents have become bitter and disappointed with their children's attitudes. Quite a few children resent their elderly parents who have become a burden to them. More parents are realizing that they have made a grave mistake in their parenting. Now these parents are planning to lead a different kind of life from the generation that came before them. The empty gratitude they receive for giving the best to their kids is no longer acceptable. That explains the growing, unseen social phenomenon of strife between parents and their children. But it is a real, existing problem. This TV miniseries follows the drama of a mother who decides to get back at her children who are disinterested in devoting their affection, time and money on her but are resolutely expecting an inheritance. Who will be the winner in such a battle between parent and children? And will there even be a winner in this revenge drama? The show will stay upbeat with touching moments that will reach a conclusion where two different generations resolve their problems through understanding each other's deepest emotions.
