Description


16-year-old Taji Kaur is living a blissful life - after a grand and lavish wedding ceremony she has her first baby and is expecting the second in August of 1947. In the backdrop, the British Raj in India is coming to an end and a line of partition is being proposed between India and Pakistan. Taji and her husband, Indian Sikhs, find themselves on the wrong side of the border. Amidst the ravages of riots and bloodshed, they make a desperate attempt to cross a mountainous region to reach India; but the journey is far from straightforward.


This is a heart-wrenching, real-life story of borders, civil unrest, loss, migration, religion and incredible bravery, told through the eyes of one woman who lived through these tragedies.
