The 786 Cybercafe
Nobody around him knows it, but Jamal Tunio is a man with a dream. Karachi isn't always kind to dreamers, but Jamal's plan to open a cybercafé on Tariq Road, the heart of the sprawling Pakistani port city, is one that is sure to succeed. With the help of his technically gifted brother Abdul and his best friend, the ferociously bearded Yasir, Jamal conceives a place where everyone will be able to access vistas of information, communication, and technology - and what's more, they'll be paying him to do it. The entrepreneur in Jamal can't resist this gold mine of the 21st century, where the Internet is opening up new avenues for everyone in Pakistan.
But the man in Jamal, and in Abdul and Yasir’s too, cannot resist the charms of Nadia, the beautiful, burqa-clad girl who makes mysterious visits to the 786 Cybercafé. What is she doing there, and could one of them be what she is ultimately looking for? Will the three of them be able to make the 786 Cybercafé a success, or will they be divided by the unique temptations that Karachi is so good at throwing in their way? Watch Jamal Tunio rise and fall and rise again as he tries to navigate the ways of love, bureaucracy, and the bonds of family loyalty, without losing sight of his dreams, and the independence they will bring him, a prize that he wants more than anything in the world.
