Smita is about to marry Avinash, her prince in shining armor, and dreams of a home filled with children, love, and happiness. Entering into her marriage with stars in her eyes, her honeymoon period ends soon and she is jolted into reality. After thirteen years of marriage and two children, Smita has become fat, dull, boring and a doormat. Her husband hardly looks at her, her children don’t need her, she has a pot belly, double chin, greying hair, and no self-respect. Guided by Roshini and the flamboyant Durga, she enters into the world of discovering her vibrant side through the Mrs. Perfect contest – a journey of how she sets out to improve her life and ends up changing more than her figure. What will happen in the contest? Will the road she has taken prove to be a better path? How will her husband respond? Will it rekindle their lost love? Will her children respect her? The story is an exploration of the wishes and longings that live deep inside every woman’s heart where bowed down by society, adhering to its norms and compromising on her choices, she clips the wings of her dreams but hides them in her heart- no longer a mother, a wife, a daughter, a daughter-in-law, but herself.
