When Mistry Law is appointed to execute the will of Omar Farid, a wealthy mill owner, Perveen’s suspicions are aroused by a curious provision which could disinherit Farid’s three widows and leave them vulnerable. Are the Farid widows–who live in strict seclusion, never leaving the women’s quarters or speaking to men–being duped by an unscrupulous guardian?
