The serial centres on Shamsher Ali, a resident of old Dhaka. For generations, Shamsher Ali's family have been professional drivers of "Tomtoms", traditional horse-carts.

Despite his low income, Shamsher manages to realise his dream to educate his daughter at a medical college. On the other hand, widower Aziz Sarder's daughter Nuri is not academically inclined. The hearthrob of many a local youth, Nuri is infatuated with her private tutor, Azad. The serial unfolds, building on these characters.

Masum Aziz, Chitralekha Guha, Mita Nur, Ahmed Rubel, Litu Anam, Tony Dias, Rumana and Lara Lotus are the main casts of the serial.
