Young Australian couple, Fiona, a lawyer, and Ben, a musician, arrive in Calcutta to bring home their adopted baby girl, guarded and guided by the helpful Krishna, but the paperwork is slower than expected. Fiona works her laptop and her mobile, while Ben ventures out into the city, open to its drive - and friendly street musicians. One afternoon, Ben and Fiona bump into a musical acquaintance of Ben, the pretty Scarlett, a girl whose easy acclimatization to the rhythms of Calcutta seems to match Ben's own. Ben and Fiona respond very differently to the chaos, colour and allure of the city and frustrated by the endless delays, they turn on each other, and are forced to confront their differences, long-held resentments and secrets. By the time they finally meet baby Lakshmi, every one of their expectations has been overturned, and their lives reshaped.
