1940s Pakistan, two brothers and their two younger sisters are brought up and moulded in the traditional way, to be 'Good Children'. Desperate to escape their beautiful but manipulative mother, the boys leave to be educated abroad, abandoning their sisters to their mother and her plans for their arranged marriages. Overseas, one brother falls in love with a suitable Indian girl, the other with an unsuitable white man, thereby shaking the shackles of his upbringing for good. Their sisters refuse to remain trophy wives, and disgrace the family while they strike out to build their own lives. As they raise their own families, and return to bury the dead, the 'good children' realise the tragic consequences of dishnour and disobedience, and learn how hard it is to leave the lessons of home behind.
