Munir Khan, a recently widowed Indian Canadian writer, meets the charming Mohini Singh, a college teacher, in the high-brow Delhi Recreational Club in the heart of the city next to Sikandar Gardens. An enigma surrounds the gentle, non-believing Munir, tempting Mohini to rock the boat of her steady marriage. Delhi's streets, monuments and ruins become witness to their heady affair, but tensions simmer just beneath the surface. A terror attack shakes the city just as Jetha Lal and his acolytes, selfproclaimed protectors of cows and Hindu women, raise decibel levels at the Club. Meanwhile, her parents' wounded memory of the Partition and a family trip to Shirdi create a deep churn within the traditional Mohini that shocks Munir.
