Framed by the increasingly tenuous peace between the Muslims and Hindus in 1992 Bombay, this Indian drama examines the tender relationship between 15-year-old middle-class Muslim schoolgirl Naseem and her elderly grandfather who, though confined to bed, fills her with many exciting tales of growing up in Agra while the British were in power. Though at first Naseem and her family remain insulated from the growing tensions outside, soon the political upheaval becomes impossible to ignore and people they know, including family members, get involved.
