During a trip to New York, ambitious Rana, originally from Bangladesh, becomes inspired by his "Uncle Jamal," a war friend of his father. Rana decides to stay in the US and marries Jamal's daughter, an Americanized desi girl. However, after a marriage and a bitter divorce with the daughter, he becomes a disillusioned, undocumented immigrant. Diana, a widowed American citizen and single mother, sympathetically proposes a "contract marriage." Rana finds himself obtaining his Green Card and the freedom he had hoped for. However, the situation becomes complicated. Should he stay with the only woman who has loved him, or leave to seek the American dream he had set out for?
