Nishan follows the story of a strong Ethiopian woman who has recently obtained a rare visa to leave the city and work abroad. But fate intervenes as her family, her independence, and her dreams are derailed by a sequence of accidental events. Nishan's father returns one night from gambling with the prize of an antique golden gun. Unbeknownst to him, the gun is a highly prized memento avidly sought by a pair of ruthless thieves. As the thieves move closer to discovering the gun's whereabouts, Nishan must resist the advances of Engda, her boss's conniving son who intends to trap her into marriage. Entangled in a web of deceit and danger, Nishan must navigate through these ordeals to preserve her independence, protect her family, and realize her ambitions for a better life.
