Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Seeking to uncover the mysteries of her past, a 21-year-old, Delhi-born American woman travels to India to seek out her long-lost relatives in this politically charged drama from filmmaker Shonali Bose. Kaju (Konkona Sensharma) was only three years old when she was swept away to America by her adoptive mother -- but Kaju was never given a definitive reason for her hasty departure or an answer to the question of what fate befell her original birth parents. As the visibly Americanized Kaju seeks out her relatives in hopes of discovering the truth about her past, she learns that the assassination of Indira Gandhi and the violent chaos that subsequently swept the streets of Delhi sparked a series of events that would change her life forever.
