The beautiful, allegorical tale speaks of India immediately as it gained its independence, and follows its struggle—symbolized by a young boy—as it seeks to regain a national identity.
The life of a man born at the moment of India's independence becomes inextricably linked to that of his nation and is a whirlwind of disasters and triumphs that mirror modern India's course.
