Pinggiran Ramadan takes a look at how Mamat's family try to find ways to improve their lives since last Ramadan. Sanisah goes out to look for work and takes a course to upgrade herself, while Mamat sets up a small business. But when Mamat's stall is raided for employing a foreigner, he is forced to stay at home and be a house-husband temporarily. Sanisah's determination to make a good living meets a challenge when Mamat becomes more possessive and gets easily jealous towards his wife's success. Due to the parents’ frequent squabbles, their children, Nazrul and Nazriah, keep to themselves and do their own things so as not to add burden to the family. However, in trying to be street smart, they get into trouble, which makes Sanisah more stressed. Mamat, having a lower self-esteem, leaves the family. However, he realises that no problems could be solved by running away. Pak Wahad's family has some minor changes to their lives now. Mak Munah still stays at the same house with Idris, her youngest son, who finally moved out from his rented apartment. The eldest son, Ramli, and his wife are trying to have a baby but have not been successful. Rozana is now pregnant with Idris's child but her health has not been so good.
