A powerful story set in Toronto?of three intersecting lives and how they navigate the overwhelming forces of love, sexuality and loneliness. The lives of three very different individuals, all of whom belong to the same small religious community, intersect while they try to find and pursue love and life itself. Set in Toronto, which is home to Nasreen?an Indo-Canadian lesbian and burnt-out psychologist?but a new world to Shaffiq and Salma, Stealing Nasreen offers a unique view of the world of the ?immigrant? through three different viewpoints. While working in the same hospital, Shaffiq becomes increasingly fascinated with Nasreen, causing him to bring home and hide things he ?finds? in her office. Salma discovers some of these hidden treasures and suspects that something is amiss. In the meantime, Nasreen begins attending Salma?s weekly Gujarati classes, and Salma too finds herself inexplicably attracted to her student. And an impulsive kiss sets off a surprising course of events...
