For British Asian women of a certain generation, life can be complicated – even more so if you are Muslim, single and heading into your 40s. Sabina wonders what went wrong: a failed marriage? Compromised fertility? Or perhaps she’s just too choosy? She confides in her best friend Amber that she’s planning to freeze her eggs just in case. Amber is anxious, and Sabina realises she’s going to have to work out what she wants and make her own choices, not simply go along with what everyone else wants. Wheatish is a story about a woman facing up to her own desires, her life and her mother.
