A rich por­trait of a frac­tured Mus­lim fam­ily in Cal­i­for­nia, Mirza’s de­but opens circa 2009 with the re­turn of the prodi­gal son, Amar, for his older sis­ter’s wed­ding. Three years ear­lier, he had left home, dis­graced and dev­as­tated over the end of his se­cret ro­mance with Amira, the daugh­ter of his In­dian-born par­ents’ wealthy friends. With com­pas­sion, this beau­ti­ful heart­breaker un­rav­els the mys­tery of who may be to blame for Amar’s es­trange­ment. Pack tis­sues.
