An Indian expatriate returning to his homeland to bring his childhood nanny to America reconnects with his heritage.

Mohan Bhargava, an Indian expatriate working as a scientist for NASA, decides to take a trip back home to find his childhood nanny with the goal of bringing her to America to work for him once more. Mohan, still a sort of stranger in a strange world despite enjoying his line of work, notes the clash between the first-world United States and "developing" haunts of his youth, eventually setting out on a journey to reconnect with his roots and get back in touch with his lost sense of self.
