After an arranged marriage in India, Priya moves with her husband to Los Angeles, where they share a house with his parents and sister. Playing the traditional daughter-in-law role, Priya is expected to do all the housework and cooking, and--because she doesn't immediately get pregnant--find a job as well. But the glamorous job she lands isn't at all what her in-laws had in mind. Priya soon finds herself leading a secret double life that she must hide from disapproving in-laws. All the while, she's growing into a marriage to a man whose loyalty is decidedly torn between his parents and his bride--hardly surprising, given that he met his wife only a week before their wedding. The question is, can this fragile new love survive the pull between tradition and ambition?
