When Sadia travels to India to volunteer with the exiled Tibetan refugee community, she never imagines that she would meet the love of her life. Caught in a whirlwind romance, her new love moves to America and they quickly marry. Not long after the wedding, Sadia discovers a dark, twisted side to him that eventually threatens her life. Struggling to escape the physical and psychological violence that has become her daily life, she discovers the enlightened Sufi poet Rumi, whose spiritual insights guide her to freedom.
