In an elaborate scheme to avenge the suicide of her husband and thousands of other farmers, Asha manipulates her way into the home of Darren Warren, CEO of Turong, a multinational, bio-engineering corporation, that tests, manufactures, and distributes genetically modified seeds. As the maid in the home, Asha takes on the responsibility of caring for Darren's wife, Hope, pregnant with their first child. Asha gets along famously with Magda, the Chicana gardener, at the Warren home, who immediately recognizes Asha's capabilities with the natural world. As the pregnancy progresses, Asha cultivates her power over Hope and Darren's life with the guidance of her companion, Chicoo, a flute-playing monkey. When Darren's politician associate, Panday, lands up in the Warren home, Asha's past threatens her uncanny plan to genetically modify the fetus in Hope's womb.
