One day, Nisha’s two worlds brutally collide when her father catches her in bed with her white Norwegian boyfriend. Nisha is kidnapped by her parents and sent to live in Pakistan. At first, Nisha feels alone and afraid in the strange new land, but then slowly, she starts to discover her parents’ culture in a new way.
