Idealistic spice farmer Henry (Roache) has an ill-advised affair with his housemaid (Das) and when the pair are discovered, a tragic chain of events is set in motion. Set in 1930s southern India and anticipating the end of the Raj less than 20 years later, this metaphor-laden drama uses a tale of doomed inter-racial romance to address the inherent failings of British colonialism.
