Being too American in India and too Indian in America, Dimple Lala is so confused by her seventeenth birthday, that when her parents introduce her to Karsh Kapoor, a “suitable Indian boy”, the son of friends, she rebels against their choice. Her best friend, Gwyn, a blond and blue-eyed beauty becomes interested in Karsh, even as Dimple finds herself drawn to him. Dimple is a photographer who views her life through her “third eye”, making her more observer than participant. On one level, this is the story of teen identity struggle, but on a more complex level, it is about finding a place in one’s culture.
