The campaign for Indian independence culminated in a decision that the end of British rule would be accompanied by Partition – the separation of India and Pakistan.

The suddenness of this process would cause huge unrest and bloodshed, and while Viceroy Mountbatten (Bonneville) and his wife Edwina (Anderson) prepared for the transition, its impact was greatest among their staff, such as Jeet (Manish Dayal), a Hindu, and Aalia (Huma Qureshi), a Muslim.

Chadha (Bride and Prejudice, Bend It Like Beckham) brings her characteristic keen eye and storytelling flair to this vital episode from the recent past.
