NYC PREMIERE In the 1900s, Indian men immigrated to Louisiana, often intermarrying with African American women. Fatima, a descendant of this practice, journeys from her New Orleans home to Kolkata, seeking her long-lost forbears. Armed with a handful of faded documents, she struggles with language and suspicion, but the lure of family and the kindness of strangers make her quest worthwhile. Vibrant, colorful scenery provides the backdrop for this easy-paced, feel-good tale of finding your roots. – Karen McMullen
