Inspired by the short story ‘Pali’ by Bhisham Sahni. It’s summer 1947 and 16 million people are on the move between India and the newly-formed Pakistan. Amid the upheaval, young Pali’s fingers slip from his father’s hand and his destiny changes forever. Taken in by a Muslim family, he is given a new name, Altaaf, and a new faith. When his real father returns to claim him, Pali must decide who he is: the Hindu boy he was born to be, the Muslim boy he has become, or simply a child of the divide.

Imaginative and educational slice of history seen through the eyes of a child.
