Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: In the wake of her mother's death, Shalini, a privileged and restless young woman from Bangalore, sets out for a remote Himalayan village in the troubled northern region of Kashmir. Certain that the loss of her mother is somehow connected to the decade-old disappearance of Bashir Ahmed, a charming Kashmiri salesman who frequented her childhood home, she is determined to confront him. Brought face to face with Kashmir's politics, as well as the tangled history of the local family that takes her in, Shalini, finds herself forced to make a series of choices that could hold dangerous repercussions for the very people she has come to love.
