When the movie opens, a woman is recalling the events that molded her perspective on the world. Years
ago, her husband, a wealthy Western-educated landowner, challenged tradition by providing her with
schooling, and inviting her out of the seclusion in which married women were kept, to the consternation
of more conservative relatives. Meeting her husband's visiting friend from college, a leader of an
economic rebellion against the British, she takes up his political cause, despite her husbands warnings.
as the story progresses, the relationship between the woman and the visitor becomes more than
platonic, and the political battles, pitting rich against poor and Hindu against Moslem, turn out not to be
quite as simple as she had first thought.
