Sometimes you have to go a long way to find what you're looking for. And sometimes a little beginner's luck is all you need... ? Welcome to the First Class India USA Destination Vacation Tour Company? ? One fixed itinerary, one fixed price? ? All levels catered for? ? No refunds? Beginner Recently widowed Pival Sengupta has never travelled alone before and her first trip to this strange country masks a secret agenda: to find out the truth about her long-estranged son. Intermediate Satya, her guileless and resourceful tour guide, has been in America for less than a year and has never actually left the five boroughs of New York. Advanced An aspiring/failing actress, Rebecca signed up for the role of Pival's modesty companion; it might not be her big break but surely it'll break her out of the rut she's stuck in. As their preconceptions about each other and about America are challenged, with a little beginner's luck, these unlikely companions might learn how to live again. A big-hearted, hilarious tale of forgiveness, hope, and acceptance, reminding us that there is no roadmap to life.
