Featuring original score from Mark Kilian. Amidst the growing nationalist movement in 1930's India, T.K. Neelan, a Western-educated idealistic young Indian man, finds himself torn between his ambitions for the future and his loyalty to the past when the local villagers learn of an adulterous affair between his boss, Henry Moores, a British colonialist striving to build a road to expand his spice harvesting business, and Moores' beautiful married Indian housemaid Sajani.
