When his adopted mother dies unexpectedly, Roger Moreau loses the last tie he has to his Canadian upbringing and identity. He decides to travel to India to find the birth family that gave him up for adoption more than two decades ago.

When he steps off the plane into the crowded streets of Mumbai he is confronted by his own foreignness in a strange, new land. While eager to be reunited with his family, complications immediately threaten Rog’s search when a Catholic orphan- age reveals his adoption documents are forgeries.

More desperate than ever, Rog sets out on a quest into Madhya Pradesh - the impoverished, rural heartland of India - to find the one local official who can help him solve the mystery surrounding his adoption.

Rog’s journey takes him into the dark alleys, dusty roads and cramped train cars of India’s underclass as he tries to connect the threads of his own story. Rog is pushed to his physical and emotional breaking point, and forced to confront the ghosts and sinister forces haunting him - only then is he able to discover the truth.
