It’s the happiest day of Khush’s life. Arriving at the Gurdwara, the kirtan music soothes her nerves until a blood-curdling chant rises. A group of men have forcibly blocked the entrance to the prayer hall inside to stop her wedding. Their objection? The religious marriage of a Sikh to a non-Sikh.
Khush confronts the group leader recognising him as Bal, an old bullied school friend she used to defend. Meeting again now, their differing beliefs clash. Can Khush persuade Bal to back down, to salvage her wedding – and more importantly, her faith?
