Tara is a feisty teenager living with her single mother - a proud and elaborate woman, who resists her daughter's fleeting outbursts of rebellion. Tara risks family and social tradition as she pursues her attraction towards her housemaid, Devi. When they are caught together at a dinner party, Tara must suddenly define who she really is. Set in New Delhi, the film explores the reality of being a closeted lesbian in contemporary India.
