Anushka Lamba, a strong minded British Indian woman wants to shape her destiny as director of her own life. Except, she constantly battles with her inner self and her traditional but loving Hindu parents, who believe she is too 'westernised' and not Indian enough.
When Anu arrives at university, half way across the country, to study a degree that's far from her parents choice and their wavering eye - she's exposed to freedom and independence in abundance. She embarks on a secret relationship with fellow student Chris, whom she desperately wants to introduce and welcome into her family. Her dilemmas and decisions take her on a roller coaster ride - a tangled web of culture, identity, betrayal confusion, love, hatred and heartache - in ways she could never have imagined.
Is Anu strong enough to face the obstacles that stand in her way or will she give up midway and live a lesser life, leaving things to the mercy of destiny?
