Handful of Henna

Being dragged by her mother back to the family village thousands of miles away is no fun for 13-year-old Nasreen. In the monsoon rain and unable to text her friends, she little expects what will be uncovered on her first visit. But with the mystical power of henna, a secret garden of buried dreams, and more than a little help from the wagging tongues of aunties, grandparents and neighbours, she is about to discover some unexpected truths about her mother. Based on real stories of Muslim women, this is a joyous and moving story about lives lived across two cultures and one girl’s journey to understanding her mother. Skipping back and forth across time, four actresses create a bustling, colourful world bursting with music, dance and family celebration.
