Synopsis

Life of Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan. When Jinnah dies, he is taken to a heavenly ante-room where a decision will be made on his fate, But his file has gone missing, and the Guide must question him about his life to fill in his story. He tells of the key point in 1947, when India was about to get independence from Britain, and Jinnah advocated a separate nation for the Muslim minority. Gandhi suggests Jinnah be made prime minister of the new India, as a compromise, but this suggestion is rejected and Nehru takes the job instead. Jinnah's nemesis is Lord Mountbatten, the British viceroy who opposes the idea of Pakistan. As well as this historical turning point, Jinnah recalls his youth, and formative relationships with his sister Fatima and a marriage to a Parsee woman.
