What Is the Story of Disgraced?
DIsgraced centers on Amir Kapoor, a successful Pakistani-American corporate lawyer who feels he must distance himself from his heritage in order to get ahead in post-9/11 New York. His wife is a white artist who finds herself heavy influenced by Islamic paintings; his Muslim nephew is struggling to understand his role in modern New York culture. When Amir and his wife host a dinner party for his African American co-worker and her Jewish husband, tensions flare, allegiances change and the consequences are shocking.
