India 1914: English Annie Besant arrives – political, charismatic and dreaming of a New World. She adopts a new family and is convinced she will save the world through her new-found religion, Theosophy.
Annie fights for Indian Home Rule, is imprisoned by the British for sedition and elected leader of the Congress Party. Ghandi is at first her supporter, later an opponent: and the boys’ adoption is contested as fiercely as India’s struggle for freedom. Will Annie’s great love affair with India survive?
