India. 1944. A village in Bombay Presidency (present day Gujarat). On a night when Mahatma Gandhi is visiting the village, Ba has an unexpected visitor – Pratap, a thief, has just shot a man and is seeking shelter. But the night has another predicament in store for Ba and Pratap. And as “Vaishnav Jan Toh…” is sung in a distant prayer meeting, Ba’s own conviction in Gandhiji’s message is put to test.
