Anvita, a young girl from small-town north India finds herself living amidst the Indian community in rapidly changing South Africa. As she begins to build her life there, she sees the full complexity of the Rainbow Nation, learning about the horrors of its racist and exploitative past, and witnessing firsthand the troubles, ranging from the AIDS epidemic to endemic violence, which beset it today.

At the same time, she struggles with the demands of family relationships, both past and present, and those of her career, in the end carving an independent place for herself in this unfamiliar world she begins to call home.
