Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
The British-born Shergill sisters -- Rajni, Jezmeen, and Shirina -- barely got along growing up, and as adults have grown even further apart. But on her deathbed, their mother voices one last wish: that her daughters will make a pilgrimage together to the Golden Temple in Amritsar to carry out her final rites. After a trip to India with her mother as a teenager, school principal Rajni vowed never to return. But she's always been a dutiful daughter, and cannot, even now, refuse her mother's request. Struggling actress Jezmeen leaps at the chance to drop out of sight -- unbeknownst to her sisters, she's escaping the wrong kind of internet fame. Baby of the family Shirina's wealthy in-laws are pushing her to make a pivotal decision; time away will help her decide whether she will obey, or stand up for herself. By turns funny, heartfelt, pointed, and wonderfully insightful, The Unlikely Adventures of the Shergill Sisters illuminates the bonds of family, sisterhood, and heritage that gives us wings -- and roots -- despite our differences.
