In 1947, Lord Louis Mountbatten (Bonneville) is named the Viceroy of India, and sets out to oversee that nation’s transition from part of the British Empire to independence. He and his wife, Lady Edwina (Anderson), quickly take to life in India, but with political factions forming and religious turmoil growing throughout the nation, partitioning the country -- despite the protests of Mahatma Gandi (Kabi) -- increasingly seems like the only solution. Meanwhile, Mountbatten’s manservant, Jeet (Dayal), falls for a young woman (Qureshi), but with their different backgrounds and faiths, their love is beset by obstacles.
