Bollywood superstar Preity Zinta plays Chand, a vibrant young woman who travels from India to Canada where her new husband Rocky (Vansh Bhardwaj) and his very traditional family await. Everything is new to Chand, including the quiet and shy Rocky, whom she meets for the first time at the airport. Chand approaches her new life and new country with equanimity and grace but, optimism soon gives way to alienation as she finds herself in the midst of a collective frustration. No one feels the pressure more than Rocky, burdened by familial obligations here and abroad -- unable to express his frustrations, Rocky finds other ways to release his anger, with Chand bearing the brunt of his repressed rage. Trapped in a world she cannot comprehend and seemingly unable to please her husband, Chand turns to her co-worker Rosa (Yanna McIntosh), a tough and savvy Jamaican-Canadian woman, who gives her a magical root, promising that it will make Rocky fall deeply in love with her. Soon, surreal incidents occur and Chand’s life begins to mirror an Indian fable involving a King Cobra. As the lines between fantasy and reality converge, Chand and Rocky come face to face with each other and themselves.
