An experienced psychologist, Maggie carefully maintains emotional distance from her patients. But when she meets a young Indian woman who tried to kill herself, her professional detachment disintegrates. Cut off from her family in India, Lakshmi is desperately lonely and trapped in a loveless marriage to a domineering man who limits her world to their small restaurant and grocery store. Determined to empower Lakshmi as a woman who feels valued in her own right, Maggie abandons protocol. But as doctor and patient become friends, long-buried secrets will jeopardize their close bond, shake their faith in each other, and force them to confront painful choices.
