To all appearances, May Brennan has it all - intelligence, looks, the recipient of raves from her recently published book and set to marry her loving fiancé Ziad, a distinguished New York scholar. But immediately upon returning to her hometown of Amman, Jordan for the wedding, the cracks in her seemingly perfect life begin to show. May's headstrong, born-again Christian mother Nadine disapproves of Ziad's Muslim faith and is firm in her decision to not attend the ceremony. Her sisters Dalia and Yasmine revert to behaving like rebellious teenagers as their estranged father Edward awkwardly attempts to make amends. Confronted with the wounds of her parents' long-broken relationship, coupled with the unavoidable clash of old-world and modern values, May is led to question the direction her life is taking. Her once carefully structured world appears to unravel as she grapples with her own truths in this fresh, exotic look at a woman caught in the crossroads between tradition and choice.
