CITY OF SORROWS is an emotionally intense story about how relationships can get complicated, and how life is not always the way we want it to be . . . Under normal circumstances, they never would have met. Rajiv is an Indian immigrant, Andrés a wealthy Spaniard, and Diego a poor Gypsy from the Southside of Seville. Just turned nineteen, Diego is recently married, madly in love, expecting his first child, and completely unaware that his life is about to come crashing down around him. On a dark road beside a sweetly-scented orange grove, Diego's life takes a tragic turn. He loses the woman he loves because it was the troubled Andrés who happened to drive by that night instead of Rajiv. Andrés's anger sets the story in motion, triggering Diego's obsession for revenge and forcing Rajiv to rely on Gandhi's philosophies to negotiate his way through the underside of life. The choices these men make ripple outward, throwing not only their lives, but an entire city, into turmoil and change. A devastating loss. A dangerous obsession. The wisdom of Mahatma Gandhi. CITY OF SORROWS is an epic story of love, death, romance and rage. About what controls us . . . and the choices we must make to be free.
