In One Part Woman, Kali and Ponna's desperate hopes for a child converge on a possible solution that puts their marriage-and their love-to the ultimate test.
In the two parallel sequels that follow-both of which pick up the story right where One Part Woman ends-two completely different scenarios play out, exploring unforeseen consequences in the future of this once-happy couple.
