When family suddenly becomes your greatest challenge, mystery, rediscovery.
As children in Calcutta, Ashim and Abhay made a small mistake that split their family forever. Thirty years later, Ashim has re-entered his brother's life, with blame and retribution on his mind. It seems nothing short of smashing Abhay's happy home will make good the damage from the past.
At least, this is what Abhay and his wife Lena are certain is happening. A brother has travelled all the way from small-town India to New Zealand bearing ancient - and false - grudges, and with the implacable objective of blowing up every part of his younger brother's life. Reconciliation was just a Trojan horse.
But is Ashim really the villain he appears to be, or is there a method to his havoc?
