I'm in India. It's the early twentieth century, and my family is caught between the comfort of colonial rule and the idea of Indian independence. In the last century, my father was head our village and even converted to Christianity. But my brother joined the rebels and was put in jail.
Me, I don't care about politics. I am a doctor, pharmacist, and businessman. I must take care of my mother, wife, children, and nieces and nephews. I am working to restore my family's fortune and good name and am currently building a grand house. I've started to hear rumors of a man named Gandhi who believes in something called passive resistance. I try to ignore the rebels, what does all this have to do with me?
