The filming follows the excursion of "Sabi Mehboob", a young LGBTIQ woman who moves between different personalities.

At first, she is a waitress in a bookstore, then the youngest girl in a huge Pakistani family. Until you get to the real mother of a family of fashionable people who live in the center of the city.

Certainly the girl has multiple personality issues, something that will make this series quite interesting, and we delve into each of these stories.

Sabi feels like she is experiencing significant change in all parts of her life, from sex to worship, sexuality, family, and career. A growth story, “SORT OF” found that the names we once emptied into no longer apply... to anyone.
