Synopsis

Humi is seven, and things in her house have changed. Her grandmother, a force of nature, has died, leaving the once spirited house in mourning. Humi watches with curiousity as mourners, dressed in white, gather in their house to observe the forty day period of mourning. Meanwhile, her mother, Nazia, devastated by the loss, starts to fall apart. As Nazia turns her back on the world and Humi, she stands to lose all that she has left. And it's up to Humi to bring her mother back from the brink.
