The story of Raj and Nina, first generation Asian Indian immigrant children who have grown up in America, and their aging mother, Anju, who is desperately trying to rationalize the family's emigration to America. Nina is bright, beautiful and emotionally repressed. She rebels against the conservative Hindu values of her mother and detests the Indian custom of arranged marriages, so she exclusively dates white men. Her attitude changes when she meets Ashok, fresh from India, who offers her a new level of emotional intimacy which she's never felt before. Her life is complicated when an old American flame, Sam, reenters her life. Ashok and Sam trap Nina in a cultural tug of war. Raj, Nina's brother is her polar opposite. His problem--he's disenchanted with his love life, but cannot break up the engagement as it would damage his sweet fiancee's reputation. Nina's family can no longer fully adhere to the customs of the country they have left behind, and yet do not fully belong to mainstream America.
