Synopsis
Set in New York in the weeks before and after 9/11, centers around the romance between a Muslim photographer and a young Sikh woman. Bike messenger Ali meets the beautiful but married Saloni, a charismatic mithaai shop owner who encourages Ali's photography and becomes his muse. Despite Ali's secret and largely unrequited crush on Saloni, he develops a close friendship with her and her husband Harry. When tragedy strikes with the terrorist attacks on September 11, her father-in-law, a retired army Colonel, devastated by grief and anger, directs his longstanding animosity towards Muslims at Ali, as the young man's affection for Saloni grows increasingly evident. Although the Colonel's wife tries to pacify her husband, the Colonel, unable to accept life's pain, threatens to bring everything to a violent end.
