NPR Summary

Stricken with a rare illness, Indian woman of privilege Kimaya grows up isolated in an ivory tower, until she builds a relationship with window washer Rahul Savant, whom she inspires to join the police force. But when Rahul uncovers a gang-run organ ring — at the same time Kimaya gets a chance at a life-changing heart transplant — their world gets turned upside down.
