" A story is like surface of the water " - Arundhati Roy 

Rajaswamy Rajagopalan, a Tamil Brahmin essayist is totally in love and happy with his East Nigerian Christian wife, Eunice Onwubiko. But there is a threat to their nine year-old marriage.

On a trip to Nigeria from India, David, their only son travels in dreams with an albino dwarf, Nfanfa. A brain illness develops in David and this (alongside the mass deportation of Indians from Nigeria) sets the two families, Rajagopalan and Onwubiko crashing in their faiths as they battle differently to keep alive the chord that holds them together.

Review:

"Promising...." - Shobha De
