One day, life takes a turn... and the familiar becomes an indelible memory. A Malayali leaves his land of Golden Shower trees and tries to find out what lies beyond. The official state flower of Kerala, its vibrant petals remind him of his home and the bonds he had forged. The characters’ resilience makes them akin to this tree’s sturdiness to withstand varying temperatures. The commonality in each of the characters is that they all wait somewhere... to see a luminous shower of happiness they yearn for. This anthology of thirteen short stories portray life’s ephemerality like the nature of this tree – to shed its flowers and leaves.
