Storyline

Nilam Auntie: An International Treasure is an eye-opening comedy and expose of Nilam Bhatnagar, the lauded threading maven, shaadi entertainer & star of Sourced Out - a popular miniseries about outsourcing on Superdeluxe.com. Maverick investigative journalist, Laxmi Harjoshi digs deep into Nilam's upbringing as a child orphaned at the steps of the Ganges river. There, uncovering her struggle to become educated, the language barriers that she couldn't quite overcome, and the indignant ways in which she earned an income. She then follows Nilam's journey to America, a move filled with new accomplishments, discoveries and challenges. Her patient efforts to find love in the latter years of life pay dividends in a strange twist that leads to her redemption. Written by PP33
