Monty belongs to Karachi’s elite – his future is mapped out, until he meets a beautiful, rebellious girl . . . Sunny is a Portsmouth teenager – he is suffocated by the love and expectation of his father, until his charismatic cousin shows him a way to be his own man . . . These three paths are about to collide. And when they do, Anita, Monty and Sunny will find themselves at the mercy of powers beyond their control, and faced with a choice that will change them forever.
