Synopsis

When Canadian diplomat Maya (Lisa Ray) and her stay-at-home husband, Michael (Don McKellar), are relocated to exotic New Dehli, they inherit a household of Indian servants ruled by the sweet and charming Stella (Seema Biswas).

But Stella isn't who she appears to be. In fact, she's secretly cooking up a few schemes of her own...
