Director Shonali Bose (Margarita with a Straw, LFF 2014) returns to the Festival with this compelling and emotionally devastating true story about a young couple who, after the death of their first daughter from a rare immunity defect, conceive another child only to discover that she is similarly afflicted. The heartbroken parents give up their jobs and travel to London’s Great Ormond Street, the only place that offers hope for their daughter. The generosity of people’s donations fund the treatment that saves young Aisha and the family eventually moves back home. Years pass and all seems well, but the family is not out of the woods. Bollywood superstars Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Farhan Akhtar play the heroic parents, driven by despair and hope to fight for their family. (Cary Rajinder Sawhney)
