1947. The last Viceroy of British India, Lord Mountbatten assumes power in New Delhi. With him is Lady Edwina Mountbatten, known for her extravagant lifestyle and her numerous romantic escapades. Even as the drama of Partition unfolds, Edwina finds herself drawn into a relationship with the future Prime minister of india, Jawaharlal Nehru – a relationship despite the odds, is destined to survive for the rest of their lives.
This spectacular story of passion that transcended national boundaries and political affiliations, moves freely between history and fiction, imaginatively ‘re-inventing’ a historical moment.
