Indian American journalist Smita has returned to India to cover a story, but reluctantly: long ago she and her family left the country with no intention of ever coming back. As she follows the case of Meena - a Hindu woman attacked by members of her own village and her own family for marrying a Muslim man - Smita comes face to face with a society where tradition carries more weight than one's own heart, and a story that threatens to unearth the painful secrets of Smita's own past. While Meena's fate hangs in the balance, Smita tries in every way she can to right the scales. She also finds herself increasingly drawn to Mohan, an Indian man she meets while on assignment. But the dual love stories of 'Honor' are as different as the cultures of Meena and Smita themselves: Smita realises she has the freedom to enter into a casual affair, knowing she can decide later how much it means to her.
