An eighty-year-old woman slips into a deep depression at the death of her husband, then resurfaces to gain a new lease on life and travels back to Pakistan with her daughter, simultaneously confronting the unresolved trauma of her teenage experiences of Partition, and re-evaluating what it means to be a mother, a daughter, a woman, a feminist.
