Since that time, she has been raising Hoda alone, and the girl means the world to her. Hoda’s birthday is approaching fast, and the girl would like to celebrate it at an amusement park, together with a bunch of best friends. The overprotective mother is not too happy about it, but finally agrees. An accident at the amusement park ends fatally for Hoda, and Rana's life is ruined.
