Chandra can't believe her luck.
The boy her parents have chosen for her to marry seems modern and open-minded. She's sure they'll have a wonderful life together.
So after they are married Chandra travels out to the desert to live with her new husband and his family - only when she gets there, things are not as she imagined.
Alone in her darkened room she tries to keep her strength and hang onto her identity.
She is Chandra...and she won't let it be forgotten.
