With lucid and radiant color cinematography and haunting narration, this portrait of cultural confrontation captures the complex rhythm of middle-class family life in small town India. Ashok Sheth emigrates to New York to seek a better life for his family but postpones sending for them once he arrives. Moving away from his traditional life he left behind, the tension mounts when Sheth journeys back to India and confronts a despairing wife who has lost faith. The film makes a universal statement about uprooting, starting a new life, and the pain of those left behind.
