Can You Hear the Nightbird Call?




Quickie recap: Three Indian women grapple with the same terrorist events - two from their new homes in Canada, and one right in the middle of the violence. They struggle with their roles as wives, mothers, and daughters of India and what that means from afar and from right up close.
Quickie review: Fictional characters recount the true, bloody events of India in the 80s in a stirring, compassionate, and sometimes surprising way.
Quickie recommendation: Yup.
