A tradition bound widow existing
precariously at the largesse of her brother’s family in a remote provincial village
has no choice but to barter her young daughter for the future of her son. Forced
into an early marriage and full of apprehension, her daughter Savithri journeys
to the dense plantations of Malaya and evolves into a woman who cautiously embraces
change, new relationships and most importantly her grand-niece, Elisa.
Living on her own terms and to make
amends for a wrong committed by her family, Elisa thinks nothing of reaching
out to Madison Blue, a teenager who lives with her alcoholic mother in a
trailer park. Blue, with
Elisa's help, discovers her true calling and fulfills the dream of a fallen
English and History teacher by profession, Aishwariyaa Ramakanthan lives in San
Jose, California. She travels frequently to India, and Singapore where she was
born and raised.
