Synopsis
A fictionalized tale, based on the autobiographical novel "Cracking India" by Sidhwa Bapsi, which looks at the division of India in 1947 as told through the eyes of an innocent young girl. Lenny comes from an affluent Parsee family that includes all religions among its circle. However, when talk of partition begins, and a train full of Muslims are brutally murdered, the city of Lahore is set aflame, and friends are pitted against each other.
