A provocative love story explores a spectrum of powerful emotions experienced by diverse protagonists, each of them searching for meaning, love, and a place of safety. In a graveyard outside the walls of Old Delhi, a resident unrolls a threadbare Persian carpet. On a concrete sidewalk, a baby suddenly appears, just after midnight. In a snowy valley, a bereaved father writes a letter to his five-year-old daughter about the people who came to her funeral. In a second-floor apartment, a lone woman chain-smokes as she reads through her old notebooks. At the Jannat Guest House, two people who have known each other all their lives sleep with their arms wrapped around each other, as though they have just met. All have been broken by the world we live in-- and then mended by love. For this reason, they will never surrender.
