Marriage in India is just not a union of two individuals, but also of two families. Anuhya, born to a Muslim father and a Hindu mother finds herself caught in the societal norms that define an individual by gender, caste, religion, status and education. Seven Steps to Your Heart is the quest of a girl, who defies these societal norms and seeks to build her own identity. Her progressive approach to life is an inclusive acceptance of Indian values and a rejection of traditions that are regressive. She is the ‘New Woman’, who writes her destiny.
