Amina and her family have fled Vancouver to Toronto to escape her estranged lover Josh and the stamp of shame from their patriarchal community, but Josh tracks them down and drunk, he crashes an engagement party. Amina’s father Mr. Saleh invites yet another suitor, a village chief Omar for dinner, to rid his daughter off his hands. Omar accepts the proposition. Amina sends Josh a message to meet in secret to say goodbye; but Josh wouldn’t let her go easily, not when she is carrying their unborn child.
