Description

All Those Tears We Can't See is the story of Monica, a first generation Indian-American girl who believe that she is American at heart, even though both her parents are Indian. Although she loves them and respects their beliefs and customs wholeheartedly, there is a cultural gap that never seems to fill. When Monica falls in love with Brandon, an American and a Christian, her mother disapproves of the relationship. She believes that this will put an end to Bengali traditions for future generations. Her past is holding her back from embracing the future with her daughter. To understand her mother better, Monica takes a job opportunity in India. There, she falls in love with the country, its traditions and religion. However, tragedy befalls her. What will happen now? Can she go back to America and share her newfound love with her mother and Brandon? Will she even get the chance? Will her mother realize that love between two people has no boundaries? Will she embrace and accept Brandon as family by breaking her predefined set of values about race and religion, and finally choose the ultimate justice for her daughter?
