Tina Das wants to belong, but she just isn't sure where. India or America? Brooklyn or Bombay? Manhattan or Delhi? Or start from scratch in London--she still has fond memories of her one-night stand with Rocco Gallagher, the handsome Australian, as they traipsed through Covent Garden and Seven Dials, but he never called back so maybe it's time to let that dream go, and focus on finding the next big story for her streaming network instead.
She's hoping she'll find it at her cousin's lavish, weeklong Delhi wedding, and has taken her best friend Marianne Laing along for the ride to Delhi's poshest country club, Colebrookes. Marianne has always had international tastes, in life and in love, yet can't help but think of sweet, steady, khaki-clad Tom back home in New York.
Also in attendance are Tina's divorced parents: her mother, Radha, who's bringing her American "boyfriend," David, to the wedding, and her father, Neel, who's using the visit to India to explore the idea of dating again, only to discover it and he have both changed completely in the decades he's been away.
