It's an intertwined drama of three women set in modern times in India, Italy, and Montreal, Canada. The three women each face lift-changing crises that finally connect by the end of \"The Braid.\" Smita (Mia Maelzer) is an impoverished Dalit Hindu woman who desperately wants a better life for her daughter, Lalita (Sajda Pathan). She is willing to risk all in this pursuit. Giulia (Fotini Peluso) is a young Italian woman who works in her century-old family business. Suddenly, her father (Mimmo Mancini) is in a serious automobile accident and lies in the hospital in a coma. Giulia, against the wishes of her mother (Manuela Ventura), tries unorthodox ways to save the business with the help of Kamal (Avi Nash). Sarah (Kim Raver) is a single mother and partner in a Montreal law firm. She has 10-year-old twin sons (Adrian and Dorian Doroslovac) and a struggling 16-year-old daughter, Hannah (Sarah Abbott). Sarah suddenly faces a crisis that sends her already hectic life over the top.
