Nazli Akram seemed to have it all - a husband, two beautiful sons and a picturesque house in the suburbs of Arizona. But her outwardly idyllic existence masked the chaos brewing within the confines of her own mind. A young Pakistani-American woman, struggling with a failing marriage and her own sacrificed ambitions, Nazli’s once-promising future quickly deteriorates as she succumbs to her own personal demons and follows a dangerous path of despair and mental illness. But her story is lost through the years until her youngest son - now a grown man on a quest for his own identity - uncovers the audiotapes of the mother he doesn’t remember. And his discovery finally gives voice to a woman whose life and death have been shrouded in a veil of shame and silence.
