A story of love, loss and family set in England
Where Have We Come - A story of love, loss and family
Reena and Nik want nothing more than to keep their son alive, but the doctors aren't so sure. Can their marriage cope with a decision that will change their life for forever?
When Reena and Nikesh discover that their child has had a severe brain haemorrhage at birth their family and friends rally around to help.
The family matriarch, Sarladevi, reminds Reena of the predictions of the Guru and Reena struggles to deal with her past. They both search for a way to help their child, while Nik seeks comfort from Sarladevi with religious rituals and customs, Reena finds alternative medicine and support groups. Truths are revealed, and a wedge develops in their relationship.
Will the chasm created by their differences in dealing with the stresses and strains of looking after a sick child pull them apart? Or will their love for each other and the eternal love of their child overcome the prejudices and customs observed by Nik's family?
