In this beau­ti­fully bit­ter­sweet ex­pres­sion of love and loss, Asha mourns her grandma’s death while learn­ing to trea­sure her life and mem­ory. With two long braids, bright blue glasses, a cheer­ful col­lec­tion of knee-high socks, and a griev­ing heart, Asha trav­els from Cal­i­for­nia to In­dia to at­tend the fu­neral. The warmth of In­dian cul­ture is ev­i­dent all around, from bold col­ors, pat­terns, and tra­di­tions to the pa­tient un­der­stand­ing and sup­port that the fam­ily shows each other as they heal to­gether.
