Chitra Abhidya is a young social worker. A daughter of well-to-do Indian immigrants, Chitra has had little exposure to the effects of 9/11 on South Asians until she accepts a job to counsel families in Queens, NY who are caught up in the immigration process. She is quickly overwhelmed by the needs of her clients and the toll that detention and deportation can bring. Her world spirals out of control as she confronts a side of America she has never seen.

"Abhidya" the Sanskrit word meaning "desire," is the story of what happens when love blinds.
