Now in their mid-30s, Noor, a celebrity chef in Bombay, reaches out to Zula, a struggling choreographer in Berlin, trying to create a family for herself. How do they meet after all this time, weighed down by their mothers’ legacies/unlegacies, inheriting pain and disease that seems to come in the way of their lives? How do they really meet? In this story that explores the ideas of grappling with certain inheritances, alone, finding connection to ‘family’, finding purpose, and a meditation on women living alone.
