A play set in India in the 1910s against the backdrop of the struggle for independence from British rule.

After British social reformer and Indian nationalism supporter Annie Besant joins the Indian National Congress to fight for independence from British rule, her appointment of a local schoolboy as a near-Messiah figure in the Hindu-style cult she presides over brings criticism.
