Summary
A Place for Us catches an Indian Muslim family on the eve of the eldest daughter's wedding. As Hadia's marriage -- one chosen of love, not tradition -- gathers the family back together, her parents Rafiq and Layla must come to terms with the choices that their two daughters, and their estranged son Amar, have made. Weaving through time, we see the detail of family life, all the crucial and tiny moments, through the eyes of each family member. And as Hadia, Huda and Amar attempt to carve out a life for themselves, they must reconcile their present culture with their parent's faith, tread a path between the old world and the new and learn how the smallest decisions can lead to the deepest betrayals
Summary
A family caught between two cultures yields a resonant story of faith, tradition, identity and belonging
