Zari Zoon, a vivacious girl from Kashmir, is looking forward to marrying her fiancé when tragedy strikes. Next thing she knows, she is on a plane to America to stay with the Nabis, distant family relatives, who have offered to give her a temporary home to help her stitch back the tatters of her life. Billy Nabi, fiercely tender-hearted, longs to help Zari, but the choices he makes jeopardise them all. An Isolated Incident is a saga of haunting memories and yearnings for a lost home, of a faith continuously tested and questioned and of a love that blossoms against all odds.
