  • She will play Meera, a 30-year-old woman from Cleveland whose talents include drinking tequila, singing karaoke and not much else. She has spent her life searching and failing to find meaning, much to the chagrin of her traditional Indian-American family. An inexplicable event occurs that will change the course of Meera's life forever: she is entrusted with a super suit to protect the planet. Meera may have finally found purpose, but the world has never been in more unreliable hands.
