The tumultuous events surrounding the Indian sub-continent's partition in 1947 are re-imagined in Ken McMullen's complex and visually striking film. An asylum in Lahore provides a mirror image of the political and social events happening in the outside world. The same actors are used for both inmates and rulers.

This powerful film was made 40 years after partition by artist and director, Ken McMullen, adapted in collaboration with Marxist academic and activist Tariq Ali from the short story, Toba Tek Singh, by acclaimed Urdu writer, Sadaat Hasan Manto.
