A childless British couple visit a fertility shrine of Gulab Shah in Karachi run by eunuchs and set off a huge culture clash.
Hannah, a US senator's Jewish-American daughter, and her British lover Alistair, working as an environmentalist in Pakistan, are desperate for a child. One day with her Pakistani friend, Samira, a photographer for National Geographic she visits the eunuch shrine of Gulab Shah which has a reputation for curing infertility. They spend a few days in a special room in the shrine and one night after they have short sex, Alistair falls deep asleep because of the drugged herb they have drunk and Hannah is conceived in front of all eunuchs - while she is half awake - by a young boy, Kamal, who works there. While Hannah is very happy with her pregnancy, Alistair is embroiled in a brief love affair with widow Samira who is a single heir of a very rich grandfather. Meanwhile, the eunuchs from the shrine develop an interest in Hannah's baby, leading to tension from the clash of cultures and religious beliefs.
At 41:30, after the couple has sex, the shrine folks make the young boy fuck the wife beside her drugged husband. She's half-awake and responds positively to the boy's touch and kisses. She opens her eyes and realizes that it's the boy and not her husband whom she is making love to, but she continues to fuck him anyway.
