The Balinese Twins - Beautiful and exotic, they exchange an island paradise for the shabby squalor of London, and innocence for corruption. The Sicilian- Ricky Delgado strikes a devil's bargain with a blood goddess: 'Build my temple and bring me the souls of damaged people, and you will see what rewards I give.' The Courtesan - Elizabeth makes her living from men's desire. With a flick of the switch in her head, she feels nothing: no pain, no hate, no sorrow, no joy. The Artist - Anis takes to painting as an outlet for his rage. His artist's eye knows his subjects before they know themselves, and he paints them all, a gallery of broken people. Can they escape the deadly web of decadence and sin?

From her carefree adolescence among the coconut and mango trees of Ceylon, Lakshmi is plucked at the age of fourteen and traded in marriage to a stranger in Malaysia. Duped into thinking her new husband is wealthy, she finds instead that he is too impractical to face reality. She must find the inner steel to single-handedly raise her children, to whom she has given birth every year until she is nineteen. Her thwarted ambition drives her relationships with her children and her willpower gives her the determination to survive the nightmare of the war and the Japanese invasion. But the family bears deep scars and inflicts them upon the next generation. Not until Lakshmi's great-granddaughter puts together the mosaic of her family history does the Rice Mother's legacy bear fruit
