Inside India’s sweltering capital there is an oasis; the American Embassy School of New Delhi. The expatriate teachers that live on the state of the art campus can choose to save their big paychecks and live comfortably within the gates. Or they can step out into the bustling mega city in search of adventure.
Adam Rugnetta, a history teacher at the school wonders if he has moved his family to India just for stacks of cash. He tries to rebel against mid-life in a search for meaning with India as its setting.
The teacher soon learns that finding excitement in Incredible India is easy, but fraught with danger. Death and disease are on the surface of Delhi life. But for those willing to look deeper into the subcontinent’s food, philosophy, and people find something no other country can offer.
Just as he starts to unlock the secrets of the city a diplomatic squabble erupts between India and America. Devyani Khobrage, an Indian deputy consul general, is arrested in NYC charged with failing to pay a domestic worker minimum wage. The Indian government, enraged over her treatment, targets the Embassy school for revenge.
The comedy of mid-life soon becomes and afterthought for the the Rugnetta family. What will be their destiny now that they have become pawns in a foreign policy game?
