In India, Smita dreams of giving her young daughter an education and will go to any length to make that happen, including leaving behind all she knows in search of a better future. Giulia works at her father’s wig workshop in Italy. When he has an accident, she discovers the family business is bankrupt. Canadian Sarah is a talented lawyer. She is about to become the head of the law firm when she is diagnosed with breast cancer.

Laetitia Colombani’s assured adaptation of her own best-selling novel cuts between these three determined, sometimes reckless women, tracking echoes and parallels as well as the obvious contrasts between their levels of affluence, while moving towards an emotional finale.
