Synopsis

When Lily, a British woman living on her family's estate in post-independence India circa 1954, gives birth prematurely in a former British hospital while her journalist husband is away on assignment, she turns to Cotton Mary, an Anglo-Indian nurse who promises that "God will feed the child." "God," as it turns out, is Mary's crippled sister, Blossom, a wet nurse who lives in a nearby alms-house. Mary brings her the baby for secret feedings, and introduces her niece into Lily's household as her obsession with whiteness and the lives of her masters threatens to spin out of control.
