In this inspirational love story, Laila is a student and aspiring writer, and a member of a band at her university in Delhi. Her cerebral palsy doesn't much get in the way of her life, although it sometimes does for others. Always seeking more freedom and new experience, Laila wins a place at New York University and leaves India for Manhattan. There she meets a fiery activist, Khanum who challenges her beliefs, sparks her creativity, and, eventually, takes her to bed. For these two women, it's the beginning of a remarkable love story.
