Although his parents want him to settle down with a nice Indian girl, Gogol takes a less conventional path, dating the wealthy, non-Indian girl Maxine. Although Gogol wants to ditch his name, he realizes that his name is very important to his father. It takes a tragedy for Gogol to finally embrace his name and his background. In the end, it may not be what is right for him after all.
