Denis McGowan left India for Hong Kong to make his fortune. As the years passed and his printing press prospered, he lost touch with home. But as news of Hong Kong's impending handover by Britain to China trickles in, McGowan's stable life seems suddenly uncertain. And it stirs up his memory, filling him with nostalgic ache for his village in India. That's when young Robin McGowan decides to travel to the village his father speaks of so often: McCluskieganj, an Anglo-Indian agricultural haven founded in the 1940s in what is now Jharkhand. Only, when he gets there, he finds that the village is nothing like the idyllic home of his father's childhood. Overrun by outlaws, riddled with politics and controlled by land mafia, this is not the place where the nature-loving tribals had once peacefully co-existed with the Anglo-Indians who chose India over Britain in 1947. This is a true-to-life portrait of an extraordinary village.
