The eldest of seven children, born low-caste and female in rural India, Mamta is abused and rejected by a father who can see no reason to "water someone else's garden" until a husband is found for her. Seeking escape in matrimony, Mamta begins her wedded life with hope - but is soon forced to flee her village and the horrors of her arranged marriage to the bustle of a small city. Saved from becoming one of the nameless and faceless millions of rejected humanity by the salvation of sublime love, Mamta struggles to find a precarious state of acceptance and make peace with her past. Powerfully affecting and uplifting, set against a vivid and colorful background of Eastern life, Dipika Rai's Someone Else's Garden transcends geographical divides and cultural chasms to brilliantly expose the commonality of the human condition, compelling us to seek answers within ourselves to humanity's eternal questions: Is life random? Do we have a destiny?
