Description

Mehar, a young bride in rural Punjab, is trying to discover the identity of her new husband.

It is 1929, and she and her sisters-in-law – married to three brothers in a single ceremony – spend their days hard at work on the family farm, sequestered from contact with the men.

When Mehar develops a theory as to which of them is hers, a passion is ignited that will put more than one life at risk. Spiralling around Mehar’s story is that of a young man who in 1999 flees from England to the deserted sun-scorched farm.

Can a summer spent learning of love and of his family’s past give him the strength for the journey home?
