"If I may interrupt. I want your rice. You have the rice. If you don’t give me the rice...I will kill you"

"If I may interrupt. I want your rice. You have the rice. If you don’t give me the rice...I will kill you. So, from my point of view, you don’t really have a choice. I mean, that’s what I am getting from this situation. But what do you think?"

Shiva and Bindu, two struggling women with ambitions outside of their cultural norms and polar-opposite personalities, are forced to work for Shiva’s brother, Abhi, at his Indian restaurant serving Auckland’s more precious illegal commodity… Basmati Rice. When Abhi is unexpectedly arrested, the two must quickly dispose of the restaurant's stock or be incriminated themselves.

Trouble is, the only way to get rid of so much rice is to sell it on the Jasmine Rice Cartel’s territory.
