Summary
It's 1947 and British colonial rule in India is coming to an end. Lord Mountbatten moves with his wife Edwina and daughter for six months into the Viceroy's House in Delhi. As the last viceroy it's his task to oversee the country's transition to independence. Soon, violence erupts between Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs, which also affects the 500 staff working at the viceroy's palace. The love between Jeet, a young Hindu servant, and Aalia, a Muslim woman working at the palace, is in danger of being engulfed by the tumultuous events and their own conflicts with their respective religious communities. When the situation escalates they are forced to make a momentous decision
