Bena’s Summer

This is an enchanting, true-to-life saga of a large, extended Muslim family in modern day North India. Eight-year-old Bena, the apple of everybody’s eye, is a most endearing, generous, and courageous character. Bena experiences riots, death, family feuds and abuse during her visit to the old family home one summer and deals with it all, most uniquely, as only children can.
