The first shot of the 46-second long teaser takes viewers to 1929 Bombay, showing a woman picking up a postcard while a speech of Quaid e Azam was playing in the background.
Then the screen opens to 1947, where a train is seen loading passengers en route to another nation as Radio Pakistan makes its first-ever announcement and the scene depicted the promise of an independent state.
While the last part shows 1965, Karachi, an older woman holding her glasses while reading a letter.
